Dollar General Clears Inland Wetlands Hurdle

Garret Homes, Inc., recently built and opened this Dollar General store in Morris, about 10 miles north of where it plans to build a Woodbury location.

WOODBURY – A Dollar General store in Woodbury is one step closer to reality after site plans for a 7,465-sq.-ft. one-story building to be constructed at 614 Main St. S. was approved by the Inland Wetlands Agency on Monday night.

Though the minutes of the meeting held that night does not include the words “Dollar General” in them, the applicant, Garret Homes, Inc. of Harwinton, almost exclusively develops Dollar General store locations, and the Dollar General logo is on the site plans.

Most recently, the group has planned and built Dollar General locations in several Connecticut towns, including Morris, Prospect, and Norwich.

Inland Wetland Agency Chairman Mary Tyrrell was the lone vote of “no” on Monday night. According to the minutes of the meeting, Tyrrell said the potential impact of development on the wetlands resources may restrict the protection of those same water resources for future generations which is noted in the preamble of the wetlands regulations.

Tyrrell stated that she felt it was important to note that sometimes there’s a little more to the regulations that needs to be listened to for the future.

The meeting minutes are posted below.

Garrett Homes’ next step is to submit an application with the Zoning Commission. As of Thursday, an application has not been received by Town Planner Maryellen Edwards.
