Storage units gain county approval


— The Routt County Commission gave its approval for a mini-storage building in Phippsburg Tuesday, where the old Texaco station is today.

The building, which is being built by Pauline Breyare, will be a two-story, barn-like structure, 80 foot by 40 foot, located on the corner of Colorado 131 and Forest Street in Phippsburg. It will have 20 small storage units on the upper floor and 14 larger ones on the ground level. White siding and a green asphalt roof will make up the exterior of the building, just like the old Texaco building.

The plan was originally presented to the Routt County Regional Planning Commission in October. The commissioners tabled the ruling on the building so the petitioner could make it more aesthetically pleasing and to address drainage problems.

The barn structure was a result of that.

Jake Henry, who represents Breyare, said the site also would be raised and a slope created to solve some of the drainage problems. Instead of the water pooling on one corner of the property, and on adjacent properties, it will be directed to a drainage ditch.

Commissioners agreed it was a good plan.
