New car washes are on tap for long-vacant sites at two of Niagara County's busiest intersections.
The Niagara County Planning Board approved both projects Monday, but each needs town approval.
Plans call for a Royal Car Wash at Military and Porter-Packard roads in the Town of Niagara, in front of a former Kmart store, which closed in 2018.
Town Supervisor Lee S. Wallace said the property may be used to store privately owned vehicles. Niagara Storage LLC bought the site in April.
In the Town of Lockport, plans call for the former David Cadillac GMC at the southeast corner of South Transit and Robinson roads to be converted into a Delta Sonic car wash and convenience store with six gasoline pumps. The project will be on the town Planning Board agenda in August, said Amy E. Fisk, a senior planner for the county.
Benderson Development owns the building, which has been vacant since 2006.
