Car Wash Wiped From Wednesday Meeting

The site plan review for a controversial proposal to build a car wash at East Gate Road and Montauk Highway in Wainscott, at the site of a former nightclub, has been pulled from the Wednesday night East Hampton Town Planning Board agenda at the request of the applicant, James Golden.

With just one minor, unrelated matter on the calendar, the board's chairman, Job Potter, decided to cancel the meeting.

Mr. Golden had a scheduling conflict that night, the planning board secretary said. The site plan review process will be rescheduled for an upcoming board meeting.

The facility would replace a boarded-up and long-defunct discotheque at the site, which had been known most recently as the Star Room and was once the Swamp.
