The storage property will be allowed to extend south into 8.64 acres
January 20, 2019: The storage expansion proposal from Milt’s in Bellevue, NE was unanimously approved by the city council on Monday after the management agreed to a few concessions to appease residents. Some house owners expressed concerns that the facility would interfere in their neighborhood, spoil wildlife habitat, reduce property values, create flooding problems and invite crime.
The Milt’s Mini Storage facility will be allowed to extend south into 8.64 acres of wooded area, with six new structures to be built on the west side. Proposed parking for the south end of the site, where it extends into the neighborhood, has been nixed. Rather, the south end will remain a green space and contain a water-detention basin no more than 3 feet deep. A second basin, also no deeper than 3 feet, will be installed on the north end. There will not be any fencing around the south basin to encourage wildlife movement. Trees around the surrounding area will remain intact unless they interfere with construction.
