New Grant Avenue car wash, Genesee Street McDonald’s remodel under review in Auburn

The Auburn Planning Board will soon vote on two new commercial site plan applications: one to construct a new single-tunnel car wash on Grant Avenue and the other to remodel the existing McDonald’s restaurant on Genesee Street.
