ScrubaDub has filed plans with the Boston Conservation Commission to use a lot it recently bought next to its existing car wash on American Legion Highway to expand with new queuing lanes, automated payment systems and more vacuums.
The Natick-based chain says two new lanes on its property will let it get cars and their drivers, who now back up on American Legion Highway near Walk Hill Street, off the road.
The Conservation Commission considers the plans at a hearing at 6 p.m. on Wednesday. The proposal needs commission approval because Canterbury Brook runs through a culvert under the front of the current site, reemerging as open water on the roughly 1/3-acre lot it recently purchased.
ScrubaDub says it won't be changing the mechanism of the actual car wash, although it will add some cosmetic touches to the building's exterior. It is also proposing a new landscaped island along the brook and American Legion.
The current nine vacuum spaces along the building will be removed and 14 new units installed on the new piece of ScrubaDub land, making them safer for users, who will no longer have to worry about getting hit by drivers pulling in our out of the car wash.
The company says it will have to chop down one tree, but that it will plant four new ones.
