The Amsterdam board scheduled a public hearing for September 6 to discuss the Route 67 project
August 7, 2017: A development proposal from self-storage owner Joseph Giardino was reviewed last week by the Amsterdam, NY, Planning Board, which pushed it forward for examination by the Montgomery County, NY, Planning Board. Giardino, who already operates a Secured Storage USA facility in the city, plans to construct three single-story storage buildings at 133 Route 67.
According to the source, the 30-by-90-foot structures will have about 8,100 square feet on less than an acre.
Amsterdam planners had previously expressed concern about whether the facility’s drive aisles would be gravel or paved and asked to see detailed blueprints. Giardino presented detailed plans during the meeting and indicated the aisles would be gravel.
When presented with photos of his existing self-storage location at 4786 State Highway 30, Giardino confirmed the new buildings would be “exactly the same, but a different color.” Planners described the design as “very clean,” the source reported.
The Secured Storage facility on Route 30 is just north of a proposed $15 million U-Haul self-storage development under consideration by Amsterdam and Montgomery County officials.
