LAKENGREN RESIDENTS FIGHT PROPOSED DOLLAR GENERAL

(Preble County, OH)--Hundreds of residents inside the gated Preble County community of Lakengren are teaming up to try to fight a proposed retail development.  A Dollar General store is being pursued on State Route 732 at Winters Road…less than a half-mile from Lakengren’s front gate.  Residents say it’s an unsafe location and worry about runoff into the lake.  There are already two Dollar Generals in Eaton and 13 more within a 30-mile radius.  More than 300 people have signed a petition opposing Dollar General.  A zoning hearing is set for Thursday.
