A proposed storage facility to be built in the Northwest Crossing area is meeting with some resistance from residents.
At Wednesday night's Bend City Council meeting - resident Marie Suhre, who lives within 500 feet of the proposed storage facility says it's a real safety issue.
"Problems with unlawful activities are often conducted in such units, and compromise our neighborhood watch program and are a threat to the safety of our neighborhood. Unfortunately these structures are used by criminals; to hide stolen and contraband goods."
Other residents said they didn't feel the city had given them enough information about the project and requested to be included in a decision.
Colin Stephens, Current Planning Manager for Bend said this project within the zoning application, and usually does not require a hearing, but increased interest in the project could allow for them to reclassify the project and require a hearing.
