Dollar General Okayed On San Christopher
The Dunedin City Commission okayed final design plans Thursday for a Dollar General at 1326 San Christopher Road. Some neighbors had cited property values, traffic and other concerns as reasons for their vehement opposition to the store. But commissioners said there was no legal reason to deny it. Developers said they will use a combination of retention ponds, concrete and vinyl PVC fencing, and landscaping to shield neighbors from any potential noise and runoff.
