Dollar General Not Coming to Arkport Any Time Soon

8/21/2018

There was a big turnout in Arkport last night at the Village’s monthly meeting, with many of them there to discuss the idea of Margaret Horan selling some of her land to have a Dollar General Store in Arkport.

Mayor Charlie Flanders said that subject was not going to be on the agenda for the evening, no discussions will be held, and the issue at this point is moot.

According to Flanders, the parcel of land designated for a Dollar Store will remain zoned as agricultural, which prevents a commercial business to purchase or rent the property. The board has the power to re-designate the property at any time.
