Hesperia Approves Quick Quack Carwash Amidst Strict Planning Standards

HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) – The City of Hesperia Planning Commission recently approved a permit paving the way for a Quick Quack Car Wash establishment.

The new construction is slated for Main Street, adjacent to Cardenas Market. It will fill an empty plot 800 feet east of Eleventh Avenue and will occupy a one-acre tract.

Designed for maximum efficiency, the 3,596-square-foot facility offers automated car cleaning, a dedicated office space, storage, and an employee area.

The development plan includes ten covered vacuum stalls that will be built to withstand the local Victor Valley weather and the high winds, and a designed roadway infrastructure comprising a 28-foot-wide driveway for accessible entry and a 26-foot-wide internal driveway.

Commissioner Dale Burke voiced some concerns about the projected traffic flow given the compactness of the premises, foreseeing possible congestion issues with the entrance and exit points.

Despite the potential challenges, a Quick Quack Carwash representative assured the commission that extensive collaborative planning had crafted a fitting site layout.

The representative highlighted the unique suitability of such a narrow and deep parcel of land for the carwash, which is often overlooked for typical retail development.

Concerns regarding the possible oversaturation of local carwashes prompted Vice Chair Commissioner Sophie Steeno to ask about the city’s current construction regulations for such facilities.

In response, city staff referenced a recent moratorium and the introduction of new carwash regulations, including spacing restrictions to prevent a market saturation of car washes.

A year ago, the City imposed a provisional ban on the development of new car washes, introducing several stringent regulations.

One of these regulations mandates that express car washes maintain a minimum distance of 2000 feet from each other.

Additionally, there must be at least a 1000-foot gap between an express car wash and any car wash associated with a gas station.

After a thorough examination, it was determined that the future carwash location meets the guidelines, prompting the Commission’s agreement to move forward with the project.

However, they stipulated amendments to the original design – such as the relocation of the waste area and an expansion of the vacuum exit lanes – to enhance traffic flow and address the issues Commissioner Burke raised.

No construction date has been disclosed.
