  • Facility on U.S.-Mexico Border Is Rejected

    "A proposal to build a 44-unit self-storage facility in Nogales, Ariz., was rejected by the Nogales Planning and Zoning Commission with a 3-1 vote this week.

    "Nogales Properties proposed to build the facility facing the Arizona-Mexico border near Interstate 19. The strip of land was once a site of cross-border tunneling." (More of the story here.)

    Personally, I think this business could have done well, especially with locker rental and other short-term storage as people cross the border for a day or a few days and don't want to (or can't) take certain items into the other country.

    we'll tolerate kidnappings, drug smuggling, illegals, even murder, but by gosh, we will not allow self-storage. Sorry, but that is my initial take. Seems the industry's perception problems are not entirely changed.

      I can see how this might be a bad idea in an area of prior tunneling. I can picture a 5x5 storage door opening up from the inside and pouring out the proverbial clown car of humans. I would think the city leaders would rather have a poison ivy farm running the length of the border.
