The city of Avondale has rejected an application for a self-storage facility to be built by Extra Space Storage after multiple residents voiced opposition to the project.

The facility has been on the city's radar for about two years for a small infill site at the southwest corner of Indian School and Osborn roads surrounded by residential neighborhoods.

The two-story mini warehouse and self-storage facility is expected to total 110,620 square feet, located near The Wigwam resort and Estrella Mountain Community College. The 2.2-acre site is owned by Guardian Storage III LLC, an entity connected to Paul Hedges.

Avondale city staff recommended the planning commission approve the permit for the project but the commission rejected the application in a 2-2 tie vote on Feb. 21.

A spokesperson for the city of Avondale told the Business Journal that the applicant intends to submit an appeal for the conditional use permit to City Council. If the permit is approved, an administrative approval of a site plan and design review amendment application will be required.

Multiple residents had submitted emails or spoke at the meeting to raise concerns about the project including transparency, traffic impacts, an oversupply of storage in the immediate area and property values of homes.

"This should not be an eyesore in one of the last buildable lots, where we should be putting community enrichment and things that add value," one resident said.

Hedges applied for a new conditional use permit for the storage facility after a permit that was previously approved in 2021 for the self storage project expired.

"I stand before you to revisit a vision, a vision for a project that not only fills a critical need in Avondale, but it also represents a journey of resilience, collaboration and commitment to our community's prosperity," Hedges said during the February planning commission meeting.

Hedges said the prior approval from City Council is a "testament to its potential benefits to our community." Despite the expiration, Hedges said their dedication to the project has "never wavered."

Site plans for the project were approved in September 2022, which was followed by building permit plan submissions, extensive reviews and corrections, Hedges said. Time constraints led to a request to extend the permit for the project, he added.

The self-storage project is expected to be have operating hours from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and see one to three cars per hour on average per day, Hedges said.

"Other commercial uses would simply exacerbate the traffic issue," Hedges said.

Two planning commissioners asked Hedges what determined the need for a self storage facility on the site and whether the company performs background checks on renters.

Hedges said they typically analyze a 3-mile radius of a site and consider existing storage facilities and occupancies and growth of the area. He said they considered multiple locations and determined the need for a self-storage facility is great in the surrounding community.

"We've never been wrong in the facilities that we've built. This one we project it should fill up in approximately 12 to 18 months," Hedges said. "All the existing storage facilities are to capacity, so they're full."

Self-storage has continued to boom across metro Phoenix, which has ranked in the top of the U.S. for self storage construction. The Valley had 1.2 million square feet of space delivered in 2023, according to recent StorageCafe data.

ADOT, animal rescue capture potbelly pig roaming along Avondale construction property

AVONDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Sometimes, freeway projects come with big challenges, but the Arizona Department of Transportation never expected their construction to stop because of a potbelly pig.

ADOT says the pig, named Pixie, was spotted on their property along the corridor for the planned state Route 30 in Avondale. The property had been a mini farm, and to safely remove Pixie, ADOT called the Arizona Game and Fish Department and some rescue groups for help.

However, what seemed like a simple rescue to get Pixie off the property and into a new home turned into a weeks-long adventure. “We were able to get her close to a humane trap but never in it,” said Southwest Team Leader Carrianne Frary from the Humane Animal Rescue and Trapping Team (HARTT).

Crews worked quickly to catch Pixie as the contracted work to remove the building was coming up. However, ADOT Right-of-Way Administrator Paula Gibson postponed the removal since Pixie was still on the loose. “Pixie is very large,” said Ed Green, a hazardous material coordinator with ADOT’s Environmental Planning Group. “We did make good use of a Halloween pumpkin as part of her snacking menu.”

The property was several acres, with lots of room to wander around, and Pixie would come and go as she pleased. Frary even tried to catch her using sweet treats. “I spent more on her food than my own! Her favorite was Cheerios. We added donuts, strawberries and other snacks to her diet,” she said.

The volunteers set up a video camera to try and track the pesky pig. However, they soon discovered that other animals like javelinas, skunks, raccoons, and a large cat were helping themselves to the delicious bait.

Soon, a custom trap was built by the HARTT team and an ADOT engineer in training to catch Pixie. “We figured out the original trap wouldn’t work. That led to some great teamwork to repurpose what had been a pen for chickens,” said Frary. The larger trap included a special door triggered by a laser beam. “We had so many close calls in our attempts to help Pixie,” said Frary. “I knew exactly when she went in this time. It was a big relief.”

Pixie was captured just before Christmas and relocated to a Cave Creek-area ranch operated by Better Piggies Rescue. Dannielle Betterman from the rescue says Pixie is about 2 years old. “She has several other friends on our property, including some of our older pigs,” she said.

The “Perils of Pixie” are now over, thanks to the teamwork of ADOT and HARTT, and ADOT has since cleared the property where Pixie once roamed.

SpeedPro Comes to Goodyear-Avondale

A printing company opened a new franchise studio in the Goodyear-Avondale area hoping to build a community and aid other local businesses.“What really attracted use to the West Valley is it’s growing so much out here. We’re the sixth SpeedPro in the Phoenix area, all the others are as I like to say east of the I-17,” said Derek Muth, owner/president of SpeedPro Goodyear-Avondale. “So, we’re the only ones that are West of I-17 so that’s really kind of what drew us to this area.”Spe...

A printing company opened a new franchise studio in the Goodyear-Avondale area hoping to build a community and aid other local businesses.

“What really attracted use to the West Valley is it’s growing so much out here. We’re the sixth SpeedPro in the Phoenix area, all the others are as I like to say east of the I-17,” said Derek Muth, owner/president of SpeedPro Goodyear-Avondale. “So, we’re the only ones that are West of I-17 so that’s really kind of what drew us to this area.”

SpeedPro is a large-format printing company that can print out and place an image on almost any type of surface and specializes in experiential office design, wall murals, event graphics, trade show displays and high-impact vehicle wraps. The location is expected to open and be up and running by the week of Valentine’s Day.

Before Muth and his wife, Jenny, decided to join SpeedPro and open a store, Muth was in the travel logistics industry and worked for an airline for 13 years. Muth felt unappreciated by the company he was working for and chose to return to school and get his master’s in business administration.

“After I graduated, I was struggling to really kind of find a job or business that would hire me and actually came across somebody on LinkedIn who was kind of a business coach, but somebody who works with franchises to get potential owners,” Muth said. “So, we spent about six months just talking once a week basically discussing what my goals were, and it was that I wanted family time. I wanted to make sure I was kind of available for family. Family was important to me. So, I got introduced to three different franchises and SpeedPro was one of them. And they were the ones that really interested me the most so at that point I went to their discovery day. And I also thought it was something that my wife would be interested in as well because she was a stay at home mom for the last 13 years because we’ve been raising six kids.”

According to Muth, what added to his decision to open the studio in the Goodyear-Avondale area was the community that he and his wife found and wanted to help build within the Southwest Valley.

When looking into opening this studio Muth joined the Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce and Goodyear Legacy, a BNI group, where he made connections with other business owners who were willing to help educate him on opening and running a business.

“What we try and do is not only promote our business, but we also promote their businesses as well,” Muth said. “So, a lot of it is just making those connections … (and) it’s been, I hate to use the word ‘life-changing,’ but it really has been life-changing. When I worked the corporate job before, I didn’t have that networking (and) it just didn’t feel personal.”

Those connections have caused Muth to feel as though he is growing internally but also helped him realize how other people can affect him and how he can affect other people.

Muth hopes to continue that positivity within the community with the studio and create a family -run business that is approachable, respectable, friendly and driven.

Muth added that the SpeedPro company, although a franchise and the studios having different owners, has been very supportive of him and his wife.

“They’re all very supportive of one another even though we are individual franchises there’s not a sense of competing with one another,” Muth said. “So, if anybody ever needs help, it’s just a matter of putting the question out there or letting them know here’s the scenario and it’s amazing how quick other owners will come back and say here’s a solution. There really is a sense of team when it comes to all the owners because everyone wants to see each other succeed.”

One group that Muth wants to serve is the younger generation, specifically little league and student interns.

“We’ve been approached a couple of times from schools asking if we’re going to do any type of internship and it’s something that we’re not capable of doing at this moment, but it’s something that certainly interests us,” Muth said.

“If we can provide that excitement to students who really don’t know what they want to do, that’s something we kind of want to add to the community as well.”

Muth emphasized that he and his wife are excited to join and help the West Valley grow.

“There’s just so much growth going on out here, and we really just kind of want to be a part of it,” Muth said. “Even though what you may see is something we produced, they may not know who produced it, but we can drive by knowing that maybe we produced that sign or we produced that banner or we produced the graphics that went on the window of a business. Just knowing that is something that excites us.”
