Family Dollar Store facts

By
From page A5 | May 19, 2014 |

EDITOR:

I would like to clarify and refute the rumors being spread in Pollock by a supervisor candidate that are simply not true. First of all, the Family Dollar Store is not a “Dollar Store” as being represented. Fact is they sell items such as auto products, baby products, cell phones, clothing, electronics, health and beauty, household items, office and school supplies, outdoor living, pet supplies, party supplies, toys and seasonal items, to name a few. Shoppers have characterized this store as a mini Target, fact.

Next, the property owner Evan Bell has the right to apply to the county to bring this business here to Pollock on his property, fact. The county approved this project, not the Pollock Pines Design and Review Committee, fact. Next it comes to the Committee for Design Review based on the standards reference manual, and other specific criteria. The committee did force three changes to the proposed plan. One was the trim color, one was the rock face and the denial of the free-standing sign along Sly Park road, fact.

It would be helpful for all concerned to go to their Website and see the facts about what is coming.

Personally, I do not condone negative campaigning from anyone. So I will not be any more specific. To try to put blame on a local committee of five residents who are doing their job, then twisting facts for personal gain, is shameful. Believe me, the majority of residents would have loved another restaurant to replace the one that went out of business even before the building was destroyed by fire. But again it is the property owner’s right to apply for and put what business they want on their own property.

It is time to vote; do your own research before voting. Many of us are tired of negative campaigning. If you are too then vote no for negative candidates.
