The facility will have over 40,000 square feet in eight storage structures and an office building
April 9, 2017: Property owners Douglas Avenue Associates and U.S. Development II LLC, an affiliate of the Carpionato Group LLC, have applied to build a self-storage facility on a 4-acre parcel at 1204 Douglas Ave. in North Providence, RI.
For the project to receive approval, the town council would need to amend the comprehensive plan for the municipality, approve a zoning change to “manufacturing limited,” and grant a special-use permit within the new zone. “Self-storage is not allowed in the commercial village or commercial general zones,” town planner David Westcott, told the source.
The property owners have also asked for a rear-setback reduction from 30 to 5 feet, which would place the storage facility close to Shaw’s Supermarket. A concrete-block building currently on the property would be torn down.
The planning board will hold a public hearing about the project on April 12. The proposal will also be reviewed by the zoning board and town council.
