Sandy Cross to get Dollar General store

Nash County Commissioners approved a rezoning request that will pave the way for a new Dollar General to open up in the Sandy Cross area.

The request was to rezone 1.58 acres on the north side of Sandy Cross Road from R-40 (Single-Family residential) to GC-Cu (General Commercial Conditional Use) for the development of a general merchandise retail store.

The request was heard last Thursday by Nash County Commissioners at their regular meeting, which was moved to Thursday from Monday due to scheduling conflicts.

The property is located between the L&L Convenience Store at 5862 S NC Highway 58 and an existing residential dwelling at 3608 Sandy Cross Road. It is also across the road from a residence.

Adam Tyson, Nash County Planning Director, said the site plan proposed depicted a 9,100 square foot retail store with a 45 space paved parking lot.

"You can see the clear intention is for that store to be operated by the Dollar General Corporation," Tyson said. "The rezoning would not be specific to the Dollar General Corporation...but in this particular case, that is the proposed operator."

Tyson said because it was a conditional use rezoning request, the permitted use would be limited to a general merchandise retail store.

The county's Technical Review Committee, as well as Planning Board, both voted to approve the request, stating it would not be considered "spot zoning."

The rezoning request was unanimously approved.
