Bliss Car Wash receives approval for new self-service site in Cypress

An existing full-service car wash at 5860 Lincoln Avenue in Cypress will be demolished and replaced with a self-service car wash with updated eco-friendly technology following the unanimous approval of a conditional-use permit (CUP) by the Cypress City Council at its regular meeting on Monday, June 13. The CUP will lapse after 24 months if a building permit has not been issued and construction “commenced and diligently pursued.”

The CUP will require that the new self-service car wash submit a detailed landscape design that will comply with the City’s water efficiency standards as well as other requirements in the Zoning Code and Drought Response Management Plan. The car wash will operate from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. 7 days a week, two hours less per day than the existing car wash. A muffling device and a silencer package will be used to lessen the noise of vacuums and car wash equipment. Graffiti will be removed within 48 hours.

The project architect noted that the proposed architecture, lighting, and security cameras will discourage camping by homeless people in contrast to the existing building, which affords numerous places supportive of such activity.

According to a company representative, Bliss Car Wash is a family-owned business currently running eight sites that projects an eventual total of thirty sites. Already-existing sites are located in Aliso Viejo, Brea, Moreno Valley, Oxnard, Palmdale, Placentia, San Bernardino, and Santa Paula.

This will be the latest in a series of remodeled car washes — owned by different companies — in the general area; for example, H2Go at 9971 Valley View Street and Clean Wave Express Car Wash in Rossmoor on the southwest corner of the intersection of Katella Avenue and Los Alamitos Blvd. All of these facilities capture the water used, clean it, and re-use it. The soaps and detergents are biodegradable.
