  1. I really hope this does not go through. I live right behind the water tower and I would hate to see the lovely horses leave. I am concerned that a storage facility will bring in a lot of riff raff off the streets that otherwise would not be hanging around behind my house! I don’t think it’s going to do anything to increase the value of my home and quite frankly, for me it will make living in this neighborhood less attractive.

  2. What is to prevent a meth lab or other dangerous chemicals or ordnance from being stored there. It is so close to houses in the back. Something to consider.

  3. Plano Parkway from Alma to Independence has a fairly unique character largely based on low-rise office space. No one with residential property nearby wants to see it go to general commercial use, along the lines of 15th street, Park, etc. Furthermore, there are already numerous self-storage operations in the area, including one on 15th near Custer.
