Harmar officials give OK to car wash along Freeport Road
Developer Brian Palumbo is hoping Harmar area residents will be “all washed up.”
Palumbo was given unanimous support by supervisors Thursday for his plans to open the All Washed Up Auto Spa on Freeport Road near the Advance Auto Parts and Auto Zone sites.
Supervisors gave Palumbo the OK about a year ago, but Palumbo redesigned the site to include a “car tunnel” where a motorist stays inside the vehicle while it is washed along a conveyor belt.
“It’s a much nicer building that we originally had,” Palumbo said. “I think this will be a good fit for the community.”
Engineer Carmen DiDano said work will begin as soon as the township issues a building permit.
Matt Pitsch, township engineer, said a landscape issue has been resolved.
“There will be no trees planted near the right of way, and there will be generally pleasant aesthetics,” Pitsch said.
No residents offered testimony during Palumbo’s presentation.
