City of Bainbridge, Georgia
Mayor and City Council, October 21, 2008
Steve and Matt Reynolds voiced their opposition to a change in the zoning ordinance to allow a hand car wash in a "Neighborhood Business" district.
Council member Luther Conyers moved to approve the amendment without the "waiting area for customers" which was added by the Planning Board. His motion died for lack of a second. Council member Dean Burke moved to approve as presented (including the waiting area requirement) and the change was approved unanimously.
Approved Planning Commission Recommendation of a text amendment
Car Wash (Neighborhood): A site used for the hand washing and cleaning of passenger vehicles, other vehicles and/or other light duty equipment by staffed employees. The facilities must be completely enclosed with proper drainage consistent with the plumbing code, must provide sufficient parking and waiting area for customers, and operate only between the hours of 8:00 am and 9:00 pm.
It was pointed out this would be a conditional use provision. The conditional use must be approved by the Planning Board for any business. Council member Burke stated this is a change in the ordinance, not an approval for the present business.
