Springfield Car Wash Approved



After months of contentious debate, the 4th Street Car Wash appeal was denied last night by city council.

The appeal was filed by several Springfield landowners to reverse the decison of the Planning Commission to permit the opening of a historic car wash site on Main Street.

Owner Silas Jones plans to move forward immediately.

automotive uses hurt Springfield because people packed their belongings in them and moved to the suburbs.

Of course it also allows them to move to Springfield.

Good to hear. Hopefully this car wash doesn't have high tracks and supports low cars. I would surely use it then.

Awesome!  It only took how many months??

Now I won't have to keep driving to Mandarin to go to Bubbles.  Charles & George's doesn't come close to bubbles.

So the opposition still failed to produce zoning related facts to support their position? Anyway, I'm glad to see this thing move forward.  It will be good to see another vacant property put back into use.

It was interesting to see an appeal attempted with even less support and less evidence than the original opposition. A waste of time.

SPAR is gasping its last breaths of relevance.

Meanwhile, I wish Mr. Jones all the best. He has fought a long, hard, expensive, and completely unnecessary battle over this car wash and I am glad it's finally over. I am sure he will be successful, I for one will use it, since Charles & George's sucks and it will be the next closest one.

It's practically against my religion to wash my car, but I may take a sabbatical just to show support.

great to hear.  i don't see how anyone could prefer what is currently at that site over a new car wash.
