COLTS NECK – An application proposing the construction of a car wash and a commercial building on Route 34 is expected to be heard by the Colts Neck Zoning Board of Adjustment this month.

Testimony is scheduled to be presented during the zoning board’s 8 p.m. March 21 meeting at Town Hall, 124 Cedar Drive. The application has been submitted by 297 Highway Route 34 LLC, which is represented by attorney Salvatore Alfieri.

The application proposes the construction of a two-story, 7,876-square-foot car wash and a two-story, 2,960-square-foot commercial building with 34 parking spaces at 297 Route 34, Colts Neck. The location is near the intersection of Route 34 and Professional Circle.

According to the application, the development of the two buildings will include associated driveways, walkways, landscaping and lighting. The car wash is proposed to be open every day.

According to a public notice published by Alfieri in advance of the hearing, the applicant previously received bifurcated site plan approval to construct a car wash and a separate commercial building.

The applicant is now seeking site plan approval to construct both buildings. Bulk variances will be requested to allow access points less than 40 feet from the side yard and for other relief, according to the public notice.
