You're stretching it Emma...N'ville certainly isn't an embarrassment, still has much charm, but agree that main St needs beautifying, starting with the old hotel..yes, that building is an embarrassment! And agree with anglero re marketing. And DON'T move the High School to Mayfield!

Dollar store is not the answer, it will fast foward the deterioration of the town to a low income area. I live in NYC and I drove by the town last summer on my way to Lake George, I was in awe by the charm, architecture and quaintness of the village. I am 31 and currently researching real state in the village, this town needs market it self to young professionals and entrepreneurs like me.

Yes, Northville does need something just not in the village. Tax dollars would still come in if it went out on Rte 30 (Bramers old car dealership would be a good place) and I doubt it would harm the 5&10 if it was not in the village

N'ville may not need a Dollar Store but it needs something. The main street is a mess and needs to major clean up. The residents want no kind of development. The village is on the verge of dying, no one wants to visit or move there. No money coming in. GOd, get with the times Northville. It is the 21st century and you must move on or your village WILL just be a dot on the map. I grew up in Northville and graduated from High School there. I come back and visit and it is an embarrassment. My trips up there are less and less

Most of the stores in Northville are small business owned and the dollars earned and taxed will stay in Northville. I drive to Northville, about 30 miles, to shop at the unique stores. Pottery and art from the Orendaga, The Adirondack Store are just two that come to mind.

I doubt that family dollar is the answer, but I'd love to see someone buy the old bank property and create a business that will generate jobs, sales tax etc. Otherwise the bank will continue to deteriorate. And for those that talk about the "charm" of Northville!...have you looked at Main St. lately....the old hotel looks terrible, it's a safety hazard.. and the Allen and Palmer block across the St. looks equally bad. Except for the 5 and 10, Main St is yuck..

The last thing Northville needs is a Family Dollar.

Those of us who enjoy shopping in the 5 and 10 are not going to change allegiance because someone comes in and tears down a beautiful brick building on Main St...

Why in the village? Pick a spot on Rte 30 between us and Mayfield, lots of Choices: open lot where the "Tree" ice cream used to be, Nothing at the old Brownell car dealership either except the Camping place and it could help them!!!

Plan and simple, don't shop there if they build it! It won't take long for them to pack up and move with not enough business. The board should enact some sort of "Deposit" to cover the cost of tearing down the building when they vacate it so the village doesn't get stuck with it when they skip town.

Who, specifically, in or connected with the town would stand to benefit from a duplication of the current "5 and 10 cent" store? Answer that and you solve many questions
