Windsor may be losing the FedEx Ground distribution center, but it could gain a massive 1-million-square-foot Dollar Tree distribution center.
My colleague Steve Goode reports:
Following the unanimous approval of Windsor‘s inland wetlands and watercourses and town planning and zoning commissions last week, the proposed 1 million-square-foot Dollar Tree distribution center appears poised to move forward with construction.
Barring a legal appeal by opponents to the project in the 15 day period allowed in Connecticut, the company has no more town agencies to go to for approval or legal hurdles to clear.
Dollar Tree chose Windsor as one of two finalists for the $57 million facility they have said will bring 200 jobs to town in the next five years.
Even though Dollar Tree now has all approvals in place to build in Windsor, Dollar Tree has yet to formally announce it has chosen Windsor over another site in New York.
