City overturns rejection of multimillion-dollar wash

CAPE CORAL, Fla. — This will be the third Cape Coral location for Jay Monpetit and his co-owners.

CAPE CORAL, Fla. — The Cape Coral City Council voted 5 to 3 on Aug. 10 to overturn the Cape Coral Board of Zoning Adjustment and Appeals’ rejection of BK Sunshine Properties’ application to build a carwash on Cape Coral Parkway East, according to

Jay Monpetit and his co-owners, including his son Troy, are now able to move forward with the construction of the wash, which is their third location in Cape Coral, the article stated.

The new $4.5 million carwash will include a pet wash, reported the article, and will create 30 to 50 jobs.

“We’re just excited that we’re going to be able to expand in the Cape; pump some money into the Cape; and hire some folks,” said Troy in the article.

The City Council originally considered a motion to deny the appeal, continued the article, after presentations from city staff and Monpetit’s consultants (in addition to presentations from multiple supporters and employees of the Downtowner Car Wash).

Mayor Marni Sawicki, as well as two council members, opposed the appeal, added the article.

The passed motion of appeal requires the carwash to follow specific design, landscaping and access restrictions, noted the article, and the site will also have to remove an alleyway which runs between the two parcels that make up the lot.

“Once that gets done, it should be about six months before we’re up and running,” stated Troy in the article. “So a couple [of] months from that and then six months for construction.”
