SPENCERVILLE, Ind. (WFFT) - Dollar General is still interested in developing in Spencerville.

The company is looking at developing an empty field owned by the Spencerville Community Club, where a baseball diamond used to be.

The property is already zoned commercial, however the zoning will still need to modified for the store to be allowed.

A few dozen people attended a meeting with developers Wednesday night, many people were in favor.

That is a sharp contrast when many spoke against the store going in at the corner of County Road 68 and State Road 1 on the south edge of town.

DeKalb County commissioners rejected that zoning request.

The DeKalb County Planning Commission is expected to hold a public hearing about the new zoning change during its November 21 meeting.

If everything is approved, Dollar General could open in about a year.
