[ARCHIVED] Metal Storage Containers Prohibited in Pueblo West

Pueblo West is a planned community with covenant requirements and restrictions that not everyone has become familiar with. We are going to address some of the concerns here over the next several months. Please feel free to contact us with questions or suggestions for future articles.

Over the past couple of years, the popularity of using storage containers, railway cars or metal boxes for storage has increased. They are easily installed, fairly inexpensive and airtight so critters cannot get into them. Residents of Pueblo West and of Pueblo County need to be aware that the metal units are restricted for use for storage structures. Pueblo County also does not approve these structures as storage buildings. The Committee of Architecture does not approve these structures due to the aesthetics and safety concerns and will enforce the removal of the unapproved structure.

Due to safety issues as well as aesthetic reasons, both the Pueblo West Metropolitan District Committee of Architecture and Pueblo County will not approve them on residential property.

As always, it is wise as well as required per the Declaration of Reservations for residents of Pueblo West to contact our offices before you purchase or place any structures or other improvements on your property. Our staff will be happy to assist you with a review of the improvements that you wish to make on your property.
