SPENCERVILLE, Ind. (WFFT) - DeKalb County commissioners voted against rezoning two acres of a field in Spencerville to commercial property.

The 3-0 vote ended the potential of a Dollar General being built at the corner of County Road 68 and State Road 1.

Two weeks ago, the DeKalb County planning commission passed a non-favorable recommendation to commissioners.

Many people in the community felt that corner was a bad spot for a store, and worried what it would do existing small businesses.

A Dollar General spokesperson told FOX 55 in an email "We are respectful of community concerns. We plan to evaluate additional opportunities for a new store in the area."
