How Would You Feel About a Grocery Store Right Across from Your Neighborhood?

You need to shop, but how close do you want to live to the grocery store? That's the question Garden City's Planning Commission is considering tonight. Food Lion wants to build a grocery store on Dean Forest Road, directly across from the entrance to Southbridge.

"This is the first step of the developmental proposal then we have to get the site approved and get permits before we ever start construction," said development officer Mark Ball.

The planning commission approved the proposal and passed it on for another public hearing in ten days. It could come up for a final vote in April.
