CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) - After hours of listening to public comment, the Chula Vista Planning Commission decided to table and continue an item that would bring a new recreational storage facility to the city's Eastlake area.

The proposed facility would store 80 to 100 vehicles, like boats or RVs, on land between Eastlake High School and Antigua, a gated town-home community.

Homeowners begged the planning commission to not accept the plans for the facility saying it would be an eyesore for their properties and lower their property values.

The property manager of Titan Storage also made his case before the commissioners, citing the need for the facility in a part of town that is growing quickly.

RV owners asked the commission to consider accepting the plan because they say surrounding RV lots are full, forcing them to store their vehicles across town.

Ultimately, three commissioners said they could not support the plan as presented and voted instead to continue the item to a future date, giving the storage company time to present a revised plan.

So far, no date is scheduled for the next public hearing on this issue.
