Kind of sounds like home, except it isnt. It is a commercial laundromat in the centre of Sooke with 50 high efficiency washers and dryers where you can finish a load in one hour. All of this after you have run your car through the car wash with-out ever getting out of the drivers seat.</p><p>This is the plan being worked on by JCB Holdings, who is Bruce Logan and Jerry Liedtke. They are also the owners of the Village Food Market mall.</p><p>Doug Wittich is the front man doing all of the leg work to get this development up and running.</p><p>A grocery stores solidi-fies that youre in a town and a laundromat solidifies it a second time, said Wit-tich.</p><p>The whole concept is far more advanced than back in the 1990s when a laun-dromat was located at the corner of Church and Sooke Roads and all of the waste water ran straight into the harbour. The new develop-ment will be energy and water efficient, high tech and a social centre. </p><p>He said right now, all of our water goes into the storm drains, but with this new concept the water will be completely enclosed and </p><p>will be treated once before it goes into the sewer thereby avoiding putting chemicals into the ocean.</p><p>Thats a big part of it.Wittich said the Sooke </p><p>Family Resource Society had carried out a feasibility study and survey and found the need was definitely there for both a car wash and a laundromat. </p><p>The feasibility study was successful enough, said Wittich. But it was beyond the Sooke Family Resource Society to consider with the cost and size. Thats how we got started. It was clear that it was required and it was clear that if it was not done correctly it would sim-ply fail. The need is huge.</p><p>He mentioned people in the community of Shirley who have limited water, peo-ple in rental suites with no access to laundry and dark and dingy basements where laundry facilities exist.</p><p>The bright, well lit 3,000 sq. foot laundromat will be the biggest on Vancouver Island with 50 high tech computerized energy effi-cient machines, using one-third the amount of water used by a home washing machine. It will have a coffee shop/cafe, childrens play room with toys, televisions and videos on a loop, WIFI and television in the main laundry area. A full one-day drop off laundry service and dry cleaning drop off complements the laundro-mat. Add to that a website where you can check to see if there is a machine avail-</p><p>able. It will be fully manned and operate the same hours as Village Foods. </p><p>Its a bright, clean, safe, open concept place with automatic doors, said Wit-tich. JCB made it clear that they want it to be the best and comfortable for every-one.</p><p>The car wash will have both a touchless and a soft-touch drive through and a couple of bays with wands where customers can wash their ATVs, boats, trailers, recreation vehicles, etc. These systems use less water and less chemicals and the client can decide which system they want to use. It will use a card sys-tem, much like a punch card which you can fill with any amount of money.</p><p>This system will use the greatest technology available, said Wittich. Theres no use setting up something with five year old technology.</p><p>The cost of this enterprise is well over a million dollars. The JCB guys live in this community, they brought us the new mall, a modern presence for Sooke. Its not all about money, its about a service being brought here.</p><p>Im really pumped on this thing, he said. I want it to be a place people will not avoid, a lot of effort is being put into the comfort thing. Its going to be an incredible thing to bring to Sooke.</p><p>Wittich expects the laun-dromat and car wash to be open in the spring of 2013, pending approval by the District of Sooke.</p><p>Pirjo Raits photo</p><p>Dennis Price, left, and Sean Wittich set the posts and then straighten up the sign announcing a new state-of-the-art laundromat and car wash planned for Sooke. The location is behind Village Foods and the lane onto Murray Road.</p><p> 250.642.6361 www.ShellyDavis.ca Shelly Davis </p><p>Something Special!

</p><p>David James Chias-son, the driver in the single motor vehicle accident that resulted in the death of 15-ye-ar-old Nicolas Nic Twiddy, was arrested on May 7 for an attemp-ted robbery.</p><p>A 34-year-old Sooke man was approached by a young man he identified as Chiasson outside of the Chevron gas station on May 6 around 6 p.m.</p><p>According to Sooke RCMP Staff Sgt. Steve Wright, Chiasson alle-gedly accosted the man and demanded he give him money.</p><p>After the victim refu-sed, Chiasson repor-tedly sprayed him with bear mace and left the scene. The man then </p><p>called for assistance and received treatment from paramedics.</p><p>Due to massive media coverage surrounding the motor vehicle acci-dent that occurred on April 9 on West Coast Road, the victim was able to identify Chias-son to police.</p><p>The accident invol-ving a vehicle stolen in Sooke, resulted in the death of Twiddy and serious head injuries for 15-year-old pas-senger Maria Forbes.</p><p>Chiasson was dri-ving the vehicle, when it veered out of control along the gravel shoul-der, slid into a power pole side ways and flip-ped over into a ditch. The pole snapped in half from impact.</p><p>Chiasson and another passenger, Steve Livingstone, 18, recei-ved minor injuries.</p><p>Wright said police were able to arrest Chi-asson at his residence for the attempted rob-bery the following mor-ning on May 7 without incident.</p><p>According to sour-ces, Chiasson was also believed to be the </p><p>cyclist who was inju-red in a collision with pick up truck on the corner of Sooke Road and Anna Maria Road on April 23, where he suffered a severely lace-rated hand.</p><p>Although Wright could not confirm Chi-</p><p>asson was the cyclist, he said when arrested, Chiassons arm was bearing a cast.</p><p>Chiasson will remain in custody until his court appearance on May 24, where he will face charges of rob-bery, assault with a </p><p>weapon, possession of a prohibited weapon and possession of a weapon contrary to a court order.</p><p>No charges related to the motor vehicle acci-dent have been laid. Wright said the investi-gation is still ongoing.</p><p>SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, MAY 16, 2012 www.sookenewsmirror.com NEWS A3</p><p>Up Sooke</p><p>Thumbs Up!</p><p>Driver in fatal West Coast Road accident arrested </p><p>EDC MEETINGTHE ECONOMIC </p><p>DEVELOPMENT Commission will be discussing the Sooke Subaru Triathlon at their meeting tonight at 7 p.m. in council chambers.</p><p>SHIRLEY...</p></li></ul>
