Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- The Glendale zoning administrator will consider today issuing a variance to allow a car wash to be constructed at 3600 N. Verdugo Road. The lot is less than 25,000 square feet with a fuel pump island located closer than the required 15-foot minimum setback. The hearing is at 9:30 a.m. in Room 105 of the Municipal Services Building, 633 E. Broadway. In other cases, the zoning administrator will consider a variance to legalize an addition to a home without the required number of parking spaces and minimum garage width at 2010 Glenwood Road.

Neighbors expressed concern Wednesday over a proposed variance for a car wash to be constructed in a service station facility at 3402 Foothill Blvd. The proposed car wash was the subject of a hearing in front of zoning administrator Edith Fuentes. Applicant Rodney Khan, a consultant with offices in Glendale, said the project technically qualifies as a full-service car wash, and needs variances to meet that category. Khan said the car wash, intended as an ancillary use to the station, will be 790 square feet in size, and will operate with automated washer and dryer.

It would be the largest Lexus dealership in the Western U.S., officials said.

Patrece Otero remembers when the Glendale Unified School District used to give her $200 a year to buy classroom supplies for her 20 or so students at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School. This year, Otero received $100 for her 36 students. That's one reason Otero sat at a table outside the Franklin Elementary auditorium Saturday afternoon, selling homemade desserts to raise funds for the Benjamin Franklin Elementary Foundation during the Yard Sale Palooza. Bargain hunters found an auditorium full of clothing, appliances and toys, fresh tacos made by Franklin Elementary parents and a car wash staffed by sixth-graders seeking support for their upcoming field trip to Catalina.

About once a week, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Jilbert Amirian, 38, heads over to the old Police Department garage on Isabel Street, straps on a pair of green rain boots and hoses down dirty police vehicles. “[I] love washing,” the Glendale resident said. Amirian is one of about 10 clients from the Glendale Assn. of the Retarded who scrub down the dirtiest vehicles at the Police Department. He and other fellow washers often fight over the opportunity to spray the car tires, job coach Diann Perttula said.
