A Rochester-based developer wants to build a car wash on a long-vacant lot in the Town of Tonawanda.
Daniele Family Cos. has filed plans to open a Royal Car Wash at 2375 Sheridan Drive, just east of the town's Rails to Trails between Caputi's Sheridan Pub and a Family Dollar store.
The company has one location in Lancaster and five others in greater Rochester.
Daniele would build a 4,000-square-foot car wash on the west side of the 1.8-acre lot, with no food or gas sales. It would have less traffic than typical retail, more green space than the current lot and an attractive exterior, the developer said.
At a recent Planning Board meeting, neighbors raised concerns about noise and traffic levels. Board members asked the developer for more information.
