To Whom It May Concern and District 2 Councilman Jim Waring,

The purpose of this letter is to bring to your attention the fact that the residents of the north valley neighborhood known as Norterra have numerous concerns regarding the purposed building of a 74,000 square foot two story storage facility in their residential community. This facility would be located on the Northeast corner of North Valley Parkway and Norterra Parkway. In order to get this storage facility built, the land developers, De Rito Partners, would need to receive a special zoning permit from the City of Phoenix. We as a community are seeking to stop this from happening in the place we call home. We all chose to make our homes here because of the promise of the community, and we believe that this community is at risk. We cite the following items as examples of our concern

Ø Facility would be too large at 74,000 square feet and two stories.

Ø Facility has no current tenant which could leave it empty and create an eyesore.

Ø Facility is slotted to be open 24 hours a day. o Storage facilities can attract more crime to our area.

o The facility would increase traffic at all times during day and night.

Ø There are already several storage unit facilities with in a five mile radius, many of which are not currently filled to capacity.

Ø This type of structure has no place in a residential community. It would be better suited for an industrial area.

Ø Lack of emergency responders in the area coupled with placement of such a large structure could create a potential safety hazard.

Ø If this storage facility fails, it would be nearly impossible to find another tenant needing that much space.
