STOP development of the Dollar General Store in Middletown, California

This petition had 571 supporters

The community of the Middletown is asking that the Lake County Board of Supervisors deny development of the Dollar General Store in Middletown. Residents do not want to see this large, out-of-state corporation adversely impact the locally owned businesses, historical values, and social and ecological values of our town.

The plans for the business show a 9,100 square foot, stucco box-style building with some parking spaces.  The architecture is severely mismatched and is in direct violation of the Middletown's building design guidelines.  The unsightly loading docks will frontage Calistoga Rd., and this facility will increase big-rig traffic through downtown.  This type of retail does not offer any goods or services that the community is lacking.  The benefit of the limited jobs it could produce will be more than outweighed by possible loss of locally owned businesses and export of revenues to an out-of-state corporation with almost 12,000 stores nation-wide.  The large stucco building with the loading dock as frontage to Calistoga Rd. will forever serve as a black eye on the historical face of the community.

Middletown is a small, beautiful community with historical and cultural significance.  The close-knit community has small businesses who's families have been part of the community for generations.  Allowing a large retail corporation selling cheap wares into our community will have a significant impact on the local charm, architectural and historical values, and economic well-being of the town.  Please join me in asking our The Board of Supervisors to block this unwelcome development.
