Neighbors go ‘bananas’ over carwash construction
ST. ALBERT, ALBERTA, CANADA — The Akinsdale neighborhood here is “going absolutely bananas” over the construction of a new carwash, according to the St. Albert Gazette.
The Jan. 24 opinion column stated that the new 15-bay carwash was not a hit with nearby businesses because of concerns about limited parking and increased traffic.
Concerning carwashes, Bryan Alary, goes on to write:
I have no problems with a commercial development on the site.
After all, it’s been zoned that way for decades. What is truly
astounding is that St. Albert is going to get yet another carwash.
Maybe I’m just naive about the filthy condition of local automobiles,
but exactly how many carwashes does St. Albert need? I mean, we’re
talking about a city where huge carwashes open next door to each
other on some of the most visible commercial plots along St. Albert
Trail. I must be in the wrong business.
