Middlebury’s Short Stop gas station pitches new car wash

MIDDLEBURY — Owners of the Middlebury Short Stop at 220 Court St. are seeking permission to build a two-bay car wash on the gas station property next The Centre shopping plaza.
Jolley Associates would locate the new car wash behind the existing gas station store, in place of a 950-square-foot truck refueling canopy currently on site. The plan would also require moving an existing dumpster and storage shed onto an island east of the proposed car wash building, according to a project narrative that Jolley has filed with the town.
There would be 13 parking spaces between the proposed building and the island.
Under zoning regulations, a car wash is not an allowable use in the Village Residential Commercial District. But the district does have an allowance for a lot to be considered a Planned Unit Development, which could pave the way for the car wash to be considered, according to Ted Dunakin, director of planning and zoning for the town of Middlebury.
Town officials will schedule hearings on the application.
