Frisco council approves car wash improvement

FRISCO – John Agnew can proceed with his plans to improve the Frisco Car Wash on Summit Boulevard.

Last week, Frisco Town Council granted Agnew a variance to enclose an open-air car wash bay. The variance previously had been denied by the town’s planning and zoning commission because it did not meet all seven of the criteria required for approval, said Bill Pelham, planning and zoning commission chair.

Town council tabled its decision at its July 16 meeting to allow time to review the appeal and determine whether there was a way to grant the request, Frisco Mayor Bob Moscatelli said. The variance could be granted only if all seven criteria were met, he added.

Councilmember Dede Dighero-Tuso presented the findings to grant the variance at the council’s meeting Aug. 6, and council approved the request with a 4-0 vote. Councilmember Bernie Zurbriggen abstained from voting, Councilmember Tom Connolly was excused and Councilmember Jon Zdechlik was not present at the meeting.

Agnew told town officials he felt the 4-foot encroachment into the 10-foot building setback was a reasonable request as it would allow him to limit use by commercial vehicles, such as semis, and to screen the bay from surrounding properties.
