New Car Wash Eyed on Detroit Avenue
New “express wash” would replace a multiple bay, do-it-yourself car wash at 16910 Detroit Avenue.
A car wash on Detroit Avenue may meet a wrecking ball to make way for another car wash.
A proposal to demolish the existing Self Service Maxi Wash at 16910 Detroit Avenue was submitted to the Lakewood Planning Commission.
A new Wash Stop would be built at the location. The Lube Stop at the front of the property would remain.
The plans call for a 120-feet wash tunnel, with eight to 10 free vacuum stations and two automated pay stations.
The do-it-yourself model would be replaced with a high-tech automatic car wash that would take a vehicle through a tunnel, according to the plans submitted to the city.
The plans boast a new car wash that features a LEED-certified building; 100 percent water reclamation capability; and annual sustainability reporting.
The proposed hours of operation would be from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday; and closed on Sundays.
The proposal would have to adhere to the city’s new ordinance on businesses with a drive-thru.
The planning commission is set to meet at Lakewood City Hall at 7 p.m. July 5.
