Council says no to Dollar Tree

June 28, 2016

Citing the many new dollar stores opening citywide, Council said no to a conditional use zoning request to build a new Dollar Tree on West Portage Trail Extension in The Valley. More than 60 nearby residents had signed petitions objecting to the development, and Council noted that there is a Dollar General less than half a mile away. A resolution urging bar and nightclub owners to pat down and wand customers in an effort to prevent gun violence and ensure patron and staff safety was passed by Council.
