Rio Rancho residents may have another place to store their belongings.

The Rio Rancho Planning and Zoning Board approved a request for a conditional use permit to build a self-storage facility off Moccasin Drive and Northern Boulevard for residential and small business commercial use. 

Roadrunner Storage will employ a full-time manager who would live on the site, as well as three other employees.  

The facility would consist of an office/residence and several storage buildings that will be accessed from a two-way entrance and exit south of Toho Avenue and an exit only access directly across from Toho.

The 100,000 square-foot facility could have about 750 units, said Scott Anderson, principal at Scott Anderson & Associates Architects. 

Construction may begin once the city engineering division’s final review is finished.  

Work is expected to take about 9 months, he said.
