A plan to build a six-story building for self-storage in West Garden Grove is on its way to being put on the shelf.

At its meeting on Thursday, the Garden Grove Planning Commission voted 3-1 (with three members absent) to return with a resolution denying a request for site plan approval for the structure to be built on a 1.26-acre site at the northwest corner of Chapman and Western avenues.

The existing two-story building would be demolished. The proposed building would have five stories above ground, with a one-story basement.

Discussion on the request centered on concerns about the scale of the building – which would be the tallest in the industrial area – and the high incidences of crimes in a self-storage facility not far away.

The next meeting is set for Aug 19.
