NAPERVILLE, IL — Even though city staff and commissioners had concerns, the planning and zoning commission here voted 4-2 to allow a carwash to sell used cars on its property, NapervillePatch reported.
The March 7 story stated that operator Bill Loumbardis can now sell used luxury cars out of his Finish Line Hand Car Wash and Detail Center under certain conditions.
Commissioners were worried about a traffic increase, but Loumbardis’ plan was supported by testimony from a nearby home owners association and the carwash site’s previous owner.
Loumbardis expects the used car sales business to operate mainly online. “I don’t know why they’re giving me a hard time,” he said in the story. “If we have more than three customers a day, I’d be surprised. It’s way underutilized as it is … it makes sense.”
Some conditions placed on the business include keeping the car inventory at the back of the property and no repair or body work on-site.
