The Client

Public Storage is a publicly traded self-storage real estate investment trust in the United States. It is one of the largest owners, operators, and developers of self-storage facilities in the world.

The Challenge

Public Storage purchased land in the city of Compton to entitle and build a 132,000 square foot self-storage building with site improvements, but was stopped due to community opposition. The City Planning Commission’s decision to not adopt Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) additionally put a halt to the project.

The Strategy

Lee Andrews Group developed a community engagement and government relations plan to gain support for this project for the development, and to overturn the decision of the Planning Commission.

The Outcome

Lee Andrews Group was successful in obtaining approval needed by the city of Compton
