OLMSTED FALLS, Ohio (WOIO) - The Olmsted Falls community showed up in protest over plans to build a new Dollar General store.

After nearly 900 residents signed a petition against it, they voiced those concerns Tuesday night during a public meeting.

"It would take away business from local businesses, many of which have invested in the area for more than 20 years, " said one Olmsted Falls resident.

City leaders were at the meeting to hear the community’s concerns.

The proposed project would put a Dollar General store on Columbia Rd., just north of Sprague Rd.

The plans aren’t final, and Dollar General has said a final decision will be made by next spring.
