BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That Sections 88-369-02, Self-Storage Warehouse, and 88-605-03-D., Street Naming Committee, Procedures, are hereby repealed and new sections of like number and title are hereby enacted, with said revised new sections to read as follows:

 

88-369 - SELF-STORAGE WAREHOUSE

88-369-01 PURPOSE

Self-storage warehouse facilities have characteristics in common with both commercial and industrial uses. The regulations of this article are intended to ensure self-storage warehouse developments are of a high quality design and appropriate to the desired character of the surrounding area. The character of their development is often more similar to industrial buildings and their low activity level does not add to the vitality of a commercial area.

88-369-02 STANDARDS

Self-storage warehouse facilities must be developed and operated in compliance with the standards of this section:

A. IN ALL PERMITTED DISTRICTS

1. All storage units shall gain access from the interior of the building or site. Unit doors may not face the street or be visible from public right-of-way, except that unit doors may face state highway right-of-way if the doors are 100 feet or greater from the edge-of-pavement of said highway and screened with berms, landscaping and/or fencing.

 

2. Any building within the facility directly abutting an R or DR District may not face any unit doors toward said district, unless the doors are 100 feet or greater from said district and screened with berms, landscaping, and/or fencing.

 

3. Any fencing shall be no taller than 8 feet in height. Fences abutting public right-of-way shall be wrought iron or other similar decorative metal fencing. Fences directly abutting an R or DR district shall be of wood, masonry, or wrought iron or other similar decorative metal fencing. Required landscape buffers shall be on the exterior of the fence. The fence may run between buildings to reduce the amount of fencing required.

 

4. Any façade directly abutting public-right-of way or an R or DR district shall be comprised of at least 50 percent brick, stone, or other comparable masonry materials on the ground level.

 

5. Metal utilized on any façade shall be limited to architectural metal panels, as approved in conjunction with a development plan or project plan.

 

6. Any wall abutting public right-of-way and over 75 feet in length shall include a combination of at least two of the following features: façade setbacks, change of building materials, varied roof line, a water table, or pilasters.

 

7. Incidental uses may include the repair and maintenance of stored materials by the tenant; but in no case may storage spaces function as an independent retail, wholesale, business, or service use. Spaces may not be used for workshops, hobby shops, manufacturing, or similar uses. Human occupancy is limited to that required to transport, arrange, and maintain stored materials. The facility may contain one residential unit for an employee residence.

 

B. IN DISTRICT B4

1. Fencing shall not include any barbed wire and razor wire.

 

2. Up to 25 percent of the site may be used for the outdoor storage of operational recreational vehicles, commercial vehicles, and watercraft. Such storage areas shall not be located directly adjacent to any public right-of-way or any R or DR district. Such storage areas shall be screened in accordance with 88-425-09.

 

C. IN M DISTRICTS

1. Fencing shall not include barbed wire and razor wire along property lines abutting a public right-of-way or any R or DR District.

 

2. Up to 50 percent of the site may be used for the storage of operational recreational vehicles, commercial vehicles, and watercraft. Such storage areas shall not be located directly adjacent to any public right-of-way or R or DR zoned district. Such storage areas shall be screened in accordance with 88-425-09.
