Update: Board approves carwash’s color scheme

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — The goal of the new paint job was to improve the look of a self-serve carwash, but it had gotten the owner in trouble with a code enforcement official, according to the St. Augustine Record.

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — Back in April, Professional Carwashing & Detailing reported that David Kfoury had recently purchased a self-serve wash and thought it needed some improvements, according to the St. Augustine Record. Kfoury hired his friend, artist Jason Woodside of New York City, to paint the Davis Shores Car Wash. Woodside ended up using bright colors and different types of geometric shapes. However, after the painting was finished, Kfoury received a call from code enforcement, saying he could be fined up to $250 a day if his wash was not painted in an approved color, according to the article.

But now, according to a June 20 St. Augustine Record report, the St. Augustine’s Historic Architectural Review Board has approved the paintwork after Kfoury was able to gather more than a 1,000 signatures in support of the wash's new look via the website “savethecarwash.com.”

New paint job at carwash may lead to fines

“We really wanted to come in there with a creative vision and really kind of try to make a statement to better the boulevard,” Kfoury said in the story.

Other people, including representatives from other businesses, also spoke to the Board in favor of the carwash.
