DOWNERS GROVE – A new car wash and repair garage will soon occupy a vacant space at 946 Ogden Ave., next to a current automobile upholstery business.

The Downers Grove Village Council approved the special use for the business at its May 21 meeting.

The new shop will have seven interior service bays – four for automobile detailing, one for minor automobile repairs and two for intake and evaluation, according to village council documents.

The detailing work includes hand and power washing, waxing and interior cleaning treatments. The minor automobile repairs are limited to oil changes, radiator flushes, air conditioning recharges, tune-ups and brake services.

The village documents report that all detailing and repair work will take place entirely within the building.
