Potential Dollar General In Arlington Faces Opposition

11/7/17 – 6:43 A.M.

Several Arlington residents voiced their opposition to a potential Dollar General store in the village Monday night. The Courier reports around 12 people presented a petition with 83 signatures to village council, opposing a rezoning request from the company. The residents said they had concerns about more delivery truck traffic, trash spreading from the store dumpsters, and the impact of property values for nearby homes.

Dollar General representatives have asked the village about rezoning property at 219 and 261 West Main Cross Street from residential to business.

Mayor Michael Palmer says council hasn’t made a decision on the issue. A public hearing on the topic is set for 6:30 p.m. on November 20 at the Municipal Building.
