We will present a printed version of this petition to the Rio Arriba County Planning Department on the day of the community meeting on March 6, 2015.

Please no Family Dollar Store in Abiquiu, New Mexico!  A plan of development has been submitted for a Family Dollar Store to be built at the Old Los Trujillo's Store location on Hwy 84.

What happens in one part of Abiquiu will eventually affect all of Abiquiu. The pasture land and or arroyo you look at today maybe the strip maill of tomorrow!

We want to keep Abiquiu from being commercialized with chain stores!  Local businesses support locals, Corporations don't. We don't want Abiquiu to look lke every other town in America!  Please stop the commercialization of small town America! Allowing corporate chains in the area would compromise it's artistic value and feel.  This is unnecessary outiside competition for Bode's.  Abiquiu is an untouched small village that has kept it's character. Family Dollar is not in keeping with his historic area. Bode's General Store in business for generations is enough for thetowns immediate needs.

The community and the neighbors will get a chance to comment when this proposal goes before Planning and Zoning on March 4 at 1:30 p.m. at the Rio Arriba Conunty Annex Building.
