Staff Recommendation
Approve the request for an outdoor self-storage facility expansion by 52,650 square feet of floor area, subject to 3 conditions.
1) Meeting all applicable requirements of the City of Knoxville Zoning Ordinance. This includes the principal use standards for self-storage facilities in Article 9.3.AA, which provide driveway width requirements, as well as the requirements in Article 17.1.A.1.a-h for expanding a nonconforming building, structure or use, which include screening criteria for off-street parking.
2) Meeting all applicable requirements of the City of Knoxville Engineering Department, including stormwater best management practices.
3) Extending the Class B landscape buffer yard along the southeast side of the property that abuts the single-family property at 5903 Edmondson Lane. A final landscaping plan should be provided to Planning staff for review and approval before permits are issued.

With the conditions noted, this plan meets the requirements for approval in the C-G-1 zoning district and the criteria for approval of a special use.
Disposition Summary
Approve the request for an outdoor self-storage facility expansion by 52,650 square feet of floor area, subject to 3 conditions.
