Middletown Town Council has given preliminary approval for the construction of a large self-storage building in the Westown Business Park.
Construction of a three-story self-storage building is expected to start this summer in Middletown.
The self-storage building will be in the Westown Business Park near Johnson Controls. The McKee Group, which owns the business park, will operate it. It will be over 100,000 square feet of floor space on 4.62 acres of land.
The Middletown Town Council unanimously approved the preliminary major land development plan Monday, July 3. In the next 30 to 60 days, the developer will submit a final plan for approval, said Rick Woodin, civil engineer with Woodin and Associates in Middletown.
In other business, the council approved a conditional use permit for a 2,000-square-foot automotive window tinting business, called Tint World, at 113 Patriot Drive in the Levels Business Park.
Tint World, a national company, offers auto tinting, auto accessories, custom wheels and auto detailing, according to the company’s website. An opening date hasn’t been announced.
Middletown spokesperson Kristen Krenzer said a conditional use permit was requested because the zoning code doesn’t mention specific uses in areas zoned manufacturing/industrial.
The council also approved a conditional use permit for a martial arts school, also in the Levels Business Park.
There was also a conditional use request for the existing Christiana Care Health Services at 124 Sleepy Hollow Drive. The building changed owners and the permit had to be transferred, but Christiana Care will remain the largest tenant.
Council also approved a preliminary major land development plan for a 16,200-square-foot building to house a medical clinic and professional offices at Diamond State Boulevard and Tower Road. A final plan must be submitted for approval.
The town’s planning commission earlier recommended approval for all the applications.
In other business, council ratified an agreement with the M.O.T. Little League for improvements at Silver Lake Park. The town has partnered 50/50 with the nonprofit to purchase lights.
Middletown regularly holds public council meetings on the first Monday of every month. The next meeting is Aug. 7 at 7:30 p.m.
