Property rezoned for 11th Dollar General on Hwy. 48

With a new store opening last month on Highway 70 East and a new store under construction on Beasley Drive, a rezoning request approved on first reading Monday night starts the process for Dickson County’s 11th Dollar General store. The Dickson County Commission passed on first reading a request to rezone 1.5 acres on Highway 48 South from agricultural to commercial for the future site of another store. The Goodlettsville-based company just recently built and opened a store at 910 Highway 70 East in Dickson and is building a store at the corner of Beasley Drive and Cowan Road to replace the current store at 188 Beasley Drive. Dickson County Planning and Zoning Director Donnie Thiel told the commission Monday that Turner and Associates Realty of Nashville has requested the rezoning of property owned by Billy and Kathy Fussell for the future site of a Dollar General store. The 9,100-square-foot store is planned for a site adjacent to R&R Mobile Home Park across from Harris Road near Interstate 40. There were no speakers at a public hearing on the rezoning request at Monday night’s meeting and the commission approved the request unanimously on first reading. A second and final reading will be on the agenda for the Jan. 16 meeting. Dollar General currently has stores on North Main Street, Beasley Drive, Henslee Drive, Highway 70 East and Highway 46 in Dickson, Highway 70 West in Tennessee City, Highway 49 in Vanleer, Highway 48 North in Charlotte, Highway 70 East in White Bluff and Highway 96 in Burns.
