City Planning Commission OKs Dollar General development plan

“The site will have about 33 percent impervious area,” Bedini said. Standards allow up to 80 percent impervious area, he noted.

There will also be land left undeveloped behind the store which serves as wetland, Bedini said.

“Did you go out and look at the land after the big rain?” Commissioner Barbara James asked Bedini. He said he had went out to the site following last week’s rains.

“Me too,” James said. “I went on Saturday and it was really wet.”

The project is currently under review for permitting by the Northwest Florida Water Management District for wetland impacts, according to the letter of intent.

“On-site parking, landscaping, sewer and water connections and stormwater management have been designed to meet local, state and federal regulations.”

The proposed development will also increase Ad Valorem taxes for the city and create local jobs, City Planner David Pettis told the commissioners.
