Quick Quack building permits revoked after outcry

TEMPE, Ariz. — After hours of debate, the council votes in favor of the opposing residents.

TEMPE, Ariz. — According to www.azcentral.com, after almost three hours of debate on Feb. 8th, the Tempe City Council revoked building permits for a Quick Quack Car Wash planned at Baseline Rd. and McClintock Dr.

The council chamber was standing-room only as over 40 residents voiced their concerns, the article continued; opponents outnumbered those in favor of the carwash 3-to-1.

The opposition’s concerns focused mostly on noise and traffic while those in favor said that a carwash would be an upgrade from the old gas station that used to sit on the corner, the article noted.

Michael Pollack, who owns the nearby Peter Piper Pizza Plaza as well as other commercial properties, hired an attorney to appeal the decision made by the city’s Design Review Board to grant the carwash permits.

“I have nothing against ducks,” Pollack told the council. “I would love to see something that harmonizes with that area.”

Pollack was also concerned about noise and how a carwash would impact property values — both points that representatives from Quick Quack said were unfounded, the article added.

Jamie and Dale Burt, who own the lot, said there was a lot of misinformation about the project out there.

“It’s been 16 months to go through this process,” Jamie Burt said, adding that the claims about the size of the property and hazardous chemicals from the carwash were untrue.

The council voted 5-2 to revoke the permits, and the two voters in the minority favored delaying a vote to give the two sides time to come to a compromise, the article stated.

Before the meeting, the council was flooded with emails, the article noted.

“I’ve never had 600 residents come forward about anything,” Councilman Kolby Granvile said, adding that residents deserved a vote that day without an extended debate process.
