CSSA’s Fight to Curb Local Initiatives Harmful to Self Storage
A Request to Contribute to CSSA’s Local Initiatives Fund (LIF) - (Donation Form Below)
Working collaboratively with SSA and our lobbyist, CSSA is able to work on statewide issues to benefit self storage in California. However, increasingly we are under assault by local municipalities who are placing moratoriums or draconian restrictions on self storage. Here are some examples of what we have experienced recently:
These new initiatives add additional taxes and not only restrict new construction of self storage, but extend to any rebuild, expansion, or remodel of existing facilities.
Through CSSA’s Legislative & Legal Committee, CSSA is building an infrastructure to identify these issues early on, contact local self storage owners to supply them with materials for responding (emails, testifying), and in some cases provide subject-matter experts (such as land-use attorneys) to combat these initiatives. This takes resources – so CSSA has launched the Local Initiatives Fund (LIF). We are asking all CSSA members to contribute $5,000 (or whatever they can give) to help in this fight. These funds are kept separate from CSSA’s operating budget and will be used ONLY for researching and responding to these local initiatives.
Thank you - CSSA Board of Directors & Staff
