PITTSBURGH — The proposed carwash on Route 30 in Laughlintown, Pa., was denied on May 27 by the Ligonier Township zoning hearing board, according to triblive.com.

David Herrholtz, owner of Ligonier Property Development, had requested a variance for a self-serve wash. The engineer for the wash, Timothy Fyock, said the wash would include three self-serve bays, and one automatic wash bay.

The article notes that the property for the proposed wash was zoned village commercial.

A petition was signed by 82 community members against the wash. “We're not opposed to anything being on [the property] as a whole,” said Elizabeth McCall, a community member, “we're just opposed to a carwash or any other industry that would be loud and create this kind of hardship for the neighbors.”

Herrholtz, the article notes, plans on appealing the decision.
