    There will be no units storing with moving boxes and furniture right at the entrance to Tierrasanta.

    There will be no self-storage unit in Tierrasanta, thank you very much.

    The San Diego City Council voted 7-0 Tuesday to reject the construction of a 90,000 square foot self storage facility where Interstate 15 meets State Route 52.

    The decision was a major victory for the Tierrasanta Community Council, according to our media partners voiceofsandiego.org. Residents have been fighting the developer's proposal since residents learned of it in 2005.

    "I'm satisfied that the City Council heard what this community thought about this project, and we're satisfied with the decision they made," Scott Hasson, the community council's president told the online website. "Oct. 6 will be the nail in the coffin."

    The developer's attorney said the company will wait and see.  "We felt this was an appropriate proposal and feel the council made a mistake," said Wayne Brechtel. "The city's going to come back with findings and we'll see where we go from there."
