50 Lordstown residents protest HomeGoods project
HomeGoods proposed Distribution Center
Although the Lordstown Planning Commission is not discussing the HomeGoods project, about 50 residents are at tonight's meeting to talk about the project and their concerns with it.
Some residents have signs that say: Right Project, Wrong Property.
HomeGoods wants to build a 1.2 million square foot warehouse/distribution center on 290 acres of open residential land.
In order to build there, all seven parcels a part of the project must be rezoned to industrial.
Residents are upset about residential land being used for the project.
The planning commission will review the HomeGoods zone changes at its April 25 meeting.
