Throop Residents Say No to Dollar General in Family Neighborhood

This petition had 83 supporters

Throop Borough Council is proposing a rezoning of the vacant land on the corner of Delaware St. and Dunmore St. from a R-2 (residential) to a C-1 (commercial). They are pushing for this rezoning in order for a Dollar General to be built. All for tax revenue?
Dollar General stores are open 7 days a week from 7/8 a.m. to 10/11 p.m. These stores bring; first of all, crime, traffic, possible water run-off issues, uncontained garbage and debris, constant late night lighting in parking lots and signage, etc. A commercial building will decrease value of the resident’s home and sacrifice their security and safety. Our neighborhood has many children that want to play in a safe and clean environment. This corner of George St. and Dunmore St. is used a Mid-Valley School Bus Stop. Do we really want our children waiting for the bus in the Dollar General parking lot? NO!
This area is a residential neighborhood and commercial property does not belong here, where children play and residents value their families, homes and neighborhood. Hasn’t this neighborhood already gone through enough with the whole Marjol Battery Site catastrophe?
Dear neighbors we have to fight against Council to stop this rezoning. Please sign, share, post and tweet this petition to your neighbors and friends. If you can attend: The Zoning Planning Agency meets on the First Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m.; and Throop Council meetings are held the Second and Last Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers, Throop Municipal Building, 436 Sanderson St. Check for meeting updates and schedules.
