New Dollar General proposal goes before OC Planning Board on Thursday
LYNDONVILLE – The Orleans County Planning Board on Thursday will review an application for a new Dollar General store on Main Street.
The Broadway Group, a commercial real estate developer from Huntsville, Alabama, is proposing to demolish and remove the Crosby-Whipple building at 30 North Main St. It would be replaced with a 7,200-square-foot Dollar General with 29 parking spaces.
The site is in a historic district and the building needs a “certificate of appropriateness” from the Village Planning Board.
Tara Mathias, development manager, met in December with Village of Lyndonville Planning Board members through Zoom video conferencing. She said the store can be designed in a way that fits in with the other buildings in the district.
She said the new store would revitalize the downtown and be convenient to the local residents.
The building is on a 1-acre site and will need variances for setback distance. The store is the smallest building offered by Dollar General at 7,200 square feet. Most of the stores are over 9,000 square feet.
The village sent a referral to the Orleans County Planning Board for its review of the project. County planners review projects and offer a recommendation to municipalities. Those recommendations can be rejected with a super-majority vote at the town or village level.
Lyndonville village officials are asking the County Planning Board for its recommendation on whether a variance and the site plan should be approved for the project at 30 North Main St., which is in the Central Business District.
Thursday’s meeting starts at 7 p.m. and will be virtual. For more information, check the Orleans County Planning Board website by clicking here.
The Planning Board will also review two other projects:
• In Shelby there is a referral to the County Planning Board to review the site plan and a special use permit for an outdoor recreation facility at 11380 Main St. in Shelby Center.
• In Albion, the Planning Board will be asked to review the site plan and a special use permit for addition to an existing auto dealership at 4048 Oak Orchard Rd.
