Automated Ogden Avenue car wash facility advances

An automated car wash facility proposed for portions of a currently vacant frontage parcel along West Ogden Avenue gained momentum Wednesday after the Naperville Planning and Zoning Commission cast a favorable vote.

Petitioner Daniel Wolf plans to develop an express car wash facility, The Flow, on portions of a 4.2-acre parcel at 1492 W. Ogden Ave. The plans in motion entail subdividing the existing parcel in two, with The Flow occupying one half, at approximately 2 acres. Further development details on the other half of the parcel will come at a later date.

City staffers supported Wolf’s plans for The Flow, noting it would be compatible with automotive dealerships nearby. The commissioners’ recommendation advances to the city council for a final vote.
