NEWBERRY ‒ The Newberry Board of Adjustment met following the April 22 Newberry City Commission meeting to consider a site and development plan for Ultimate Boat, RV and Mini Storage Expansion. The property is located on the south side of State Road 26/West Newberry Road, between Southwest 218th Street and Southwest 226th Street.

The application was brought to the City by eda consultants, inc.’s Director of Planning Clay Sweger, acting on behalf of Todd Russo, operator of Tibbets Land Holdings, LLC.

Newberry Principal Planner Jean-Paul Perez presented the site and development plan to the Board. Perez said the property is within the City’s Urban Reserve Area and consists of a 100,000 square feet pre-engineered metal building for self-storage, a 27,000 square feet pre-engineered metal structure for covered vehicular storage and related site improvements such as a parking lot and stormwater basin.

Perez said the site and development plan was considered on April 1 by the Planning and Zoning Board, which recommended approval with minor changes.

The drawings identified the location of the Knox Box for emergency access to the facility, landscaping and the location of an eight-foot fence for screening of the self-storage area.

Perez said the City recommended approval of the site and development plan.
