Dollar General plans county site

HANCOCK COUNTY — Developers recently presented plans to build a Dollar General store between Greenfield and Cumberland along U.S. 40.

At the most recent Hancock County Board of Zoning Appeals meeting, Michael Thompson, a civil engineer with Hamilton Designs, a Fishers-based design company, presented plans for a 9,100-square-foot Dollar General store.

The 4.7-acre lot that developers proposed as the location for the store sits along the 4500 west block of U.S. 40, in front of Washington Village Apartments.

Members of the board approved an appeal from developers to allow all of the store’s parking to be placed in front of the store, permitting a special exception to county rules that require at least 20 percent of parking to be placed behind or beside retail developments.

Members said they approved the exception because of the development’s proximity to Washington Village Apartments.

A fence will be placed around the development, Thompson said.

A timeline for the development has not been determined, Thompson said.
