A developer will take the next step towards the construction of a car wash along New Castle Road after being granted a variance by the Butler Township Zoning Hearing Board.
An appeal filed by Hutton Butler Sharon PA ST, LLC was heard by the board Wednesday evening regarding the property at 250 New Castle Road, near the intersection with Sharon Drive, formerly occupied by Looney Toones Tavern.
The variance regards the 60 decibel limit allowed by the township that this facility would exceed in the portion of the property close to New Castle Road as a result of the blower used when cars exit the wash between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. The board decided to grant the variance since traffic on the road already regularly exceeds 60 decibels.
This developer will next seek approval of plans before the Butler Township Planning Commission next week.
