Appeal Granted for Middletown Dollar General

By a vote of 3-2, the Board of Supervisors has granted an appeal of the Lake County Planning Commission’s denial of plans for a Dollar General store in Middletown. Community members at the meeting argued against the store citing traffic concerns, its close proximity to schools, impacts on other businesses, and and the store’s fit with the community’s small town character. Next Tuesday, the supervisors will consider another denial appeal on plans for a Dollar General in the Clear Lake Riviera area of Kelseyville
