After a similar application was rejected by City Council earlier this year, proponents of a proposed car wash in Glenmore are taking another shot at a new location.
City Council supported a text amendment Monday that would pave the way for a car wash to be constructed at the corner of Glenmore and Union roads.
A previous application for a car wash further south on Glenmore was quashed by council due to neighbours concerns over noise and the fact the location was adjacent to a park.
Urban Planner, Lindsay Ganczar, says staff has no such concerns over the new location.
She says the new location at Glenmore and Union is on a larger parcel of land, allowing for adequate landscaping and buffering.
She says the applicant has been in touch with neighbours, both landowners and renters, and has not received any negative feedback.
"Comments that have come back to the applicant so far are positive. Two of the main things are the proposal will clean up the weeds and the rodents on site and staff have not received any feedback from neighbours."
The item will now go to public hearing Sept 9.
