The storage units will be on the Harbert side of the property and the company has applied for a rezoning in the area. The company sought a rezoning of 4.6 acres in total there, according to city documents.
According to the minutes of the Nov. 7, 2018 Beavercreek Planning Commission meeting, Jerad Barnett, Synergy and Mills president and chief executive, told commission members the storage units will be well maintained.
Barnett told members “they have been looking for some property in this area for quite some time. He explained they have had interest with the parcel that fronts on Indian Ripple Road, but have struggled with what to do with the remainder of the site.

“Mr. Barnett explained an addition that is missing in the area is a self-storage facility, and if it is done properly, it would be a great amenity for the citizens,” the minutes also say.
Commission members voted 3-0 to allow a planned unit development with self-storage units.

City Council approved the rezoning Jan. 14, but it does not take effect until a required 30-day referendum period ends Feb. 13, Beavercreek Planner Randall Burkett told the Dayton Daily News.
“We don’t know of any specific tenants in the multi-tenant building at this time,” Burkett said.
In order to get permits, Synergy will now need to get a specific site plan approved by Planning Commission and City Council, Burkett also said.
“We don’t have a timeline yet as to when they plan to move forward with a specific site plan, however I do anticipate they will apply in the coming months,” he added.
Barnett said the site has a medical user lined up and he’s looking for a possible retail user, perhaps a coffee or donut shop there. Marketing for the location hasn’t started yet, he said.
