LYNWOOD | The Lynwood Planning and Zoning Committee favorably recommended three new business applications Monday night.

The first application came from Lanard Allen, who plans to open an automobile detail center at 2200 198th in Unit A.

Allen told the committee that his business would clean and shampoo the interiors and exteriors of automobiles. There would be no body work or automobile repairs done.

“We have room in the building for eight to 10 automobiles that could be cleaned at a time,” Allen said. “We have no intention of keeping any overnight, but in the event something happened and an automobile stayed they would be stored inside.”

Allen also told the committee that all of the cleaning products used are biodegradable and safe for the environment. He also said that he has a contract to have waste picked up by an industrial waste management service.

The second request was from Tino Malone, who owns Lynwood Firestone at 21551 Lincoln Highway.

Malone asked he be able to sell three to six automobiles from the same location. The autos would be stored on the existing Firestone property. Malone currently has ample space for the autos, and can store them inside at night.

The final request was from Nika Crockett to operate a home day care center out of 19905 Arroyo.

Crockett has a state license to operate a day care out of her old home on Terrace Avenue. She already has applied for an updated license for the home on Arroyo and is waiting for the state inspection.

“Once the state inspects the new home I will get my updated license,” Crockett said. “The inspection is the final step I have to go through.”

The committee approved the request, conditional upon Crockett receiving her updated license.

All three requests will be on the March 26 agenda for the Lynwood board. The board makes the final decision, usually based on the recommendations from the committee. All three recommendations are in favor of allowing the businesses to open.
