Skip to main content

JOLIET, IL — The city of Joliet’s zoning board meets at 2 p.m. next Thursday to consider a special use permit for an automobile maintenance facility proposed at 2505 West Jefferson St.

According to city reports, the 1.1-acre vacant parcel is zoned for general business. D’Arcy Motors used the property in recent years to display its inventory of automobiles. Before that, a Burger King fast-food restaurant stood there, until it was torn down in the mid-2000s.

If the special use permit is approved, Take 5 Oil Change intends to build a 1,520-square-foot building at the site. Take 5 Oil Change’s construction project includes three service bays, a small office and a restroom.

The Joliet zoning board functions as an advisory panel. Joliet’s City Council is the final authority.
