  • GREEN  Plans have been approved  for a new Dollar General store in Green that will be built at the intersection of South Main Street and Moore Road. Dollar General plans to move its store from the current location in the South Main Street Plaza to the new building.  
    Plans for new store
    Plans call for a 9,187 square-foot, one-story building to be located on the southeast corner of the intersection.
    The land now contains a brick building that was formerly a convenience store for a gasoline station. Demolition of the building is expected to take place in the coming months.
    The exterior of the building will feature a thin brown brick with four sets of double windows and brown awnings. Chocolate- colored block columns will divide the windows and the block will extend across the bottom of the building.
    Lighting for the outside of the building will include two wall-mounted light fixtures on the building along with three pole lights to help light the parking lot.
    The parking lot will have 29 parking spaces, two of which will be designated as handicapped spots. The lot will be landscaped with a mulch bed on a grass strip that will contain maple trees and a variety of shrubs.
    Trees located on the east side of the property will remain to provide a landscpe buffer between the business and neighbors that are zoned as residential property.
    Additionally, a vinyl fence will be installed at the rear of the lot, A barrier is required by local zoning laws when commercial property abuts a residential district.
    "The developer has yet to indicate an opening date for the new store," said Tom Di Tirro, Green’s city planner.
    Plans for the lot call for a new driveway located on South Main Street near the south property line.
    The new driveway is expected to be far enough away from the intersection that it won't interfere with traffic from the intersection. A new freestanding sign also is in the plans for the facility.
    Clearing of the land is expected to being early next year.
