Good business - wrong location.
That was the feeling of Kelowna City Council before it unanimously shot down a proposed car wash in a residential area of Glenmore.
A standing room only crowd packed council chambers for Tuesday's 6 p.m. public hearing, prompting council to move the item to the top of the agenda.
Most of the 125 in attendance were opposed to the car wash proposed for a vacant lot on Glenmore Road across from Watson Road Elementary School.
Council believed the lot was too small and the wrong shape. They expressed concerns over the impact to both the neighbourhood and Brandt's Creek Linear Park.
City Clerk Stephen Fleming says councillors praised the proponents application, but agreed it was the right business at the wrong location.
He says council hopes the applicants will consider another location believing the Glenmore area is under serviced when it comes to car washes.
