This is a fair victory for the previous owner, who wanted out, and had NO requirement to sell to a use that would be more acceptable to the public. Anyone upset with the use could have been a bidder, to take the land away from a Dollar store. Pleased that the planning board kept us safe from a lawsuit, by following their rules, and not getting into what type of retail the public will accept.
Please note that The Dollar Store who is coming has the best reputation of being a good community participant.

I'm glad the store is finally approved. Another victory for common sense.
