Brown Bear plans to build a car wash on the site of its old Highway 305 gas station in Poulsbo.

Car Wash Enterprises, parent company of Brown Bear, is proposing a single-lane, tunnel-style car wash on the 0.75-acre parcel, according to city planning documents. The proposal also includes eight covered vacuum stations and a two-lane auto pay station.

The property is located at the southeast corner of  Highway 305 and Hostmark Street. A pre-application meeting for the proposal was held Sept. 1.

Brown Bear closed and demolished Chevron fuel stations and mini-marts in Poulsbo and on Bainbridge Island early this year, citing challenges in the retail fuel market.

“We are a car wash company,” company Vice President Lance Odermat said at the time. “Fuel is not our core business.”
