SL Dollar General store moves one step further

The reality of a Dollar General store in Silver Lake is a little closer after a public hearing on Tuesday, Jan. 12, before the city’s planning commission.
Overland Engineering, the company that builds Dollar General stores, applied for a variance to a city ordinance in regards to the required number of parking spaces for a retail property.
The city’s ordinance requires one parking spot per 100 square feet of gross merchandise area. That would require 73 spaces for the proposed store.
Dollar General usually has 30 spaces for per store. Based on the number of stores it has built, it has found that number to be sufficient.
Sam DeLeo from Kramer Leas DeLeo P.C., a surveying company from St. Cloud, was the only one in attendance at  the public hearing. DeLeo and his firm, is contracted by Dollar General and Overland Engineering to survey potential new store sites.
