The approximately 1.5 acre subject property is adjacent to Loop 337 between its intersections with Rivercrest and Hillcrest Drives. The southern half of the subject property is developed with a self-serve car wash constructed in 1985; the northern half is vacant. Platting of the property will be required prior to redevelopment.

The applicant is requesting the property be rezoned to apply a Type 1 Special Use Permit (SUP) to allow a car wash. It is unclear if the uses allowed in C-1 changed at some point, or if the current car wash is grandfathered based on the property being zoning differently in the past. However, the proposed SUP would allow the applicant to proceed with his plans to remove the existing older self-serve car wash facility, and construct a new automated self-propelled car wash tunnel on the property. Any redevelopment would be subject to current residential buffering requirements (6 to 8 foot tall masonry fence/wall plus trees).
