JTDBA PETITIONING STATE SUPREME COURT TO HEAR CASE AGAINST DOLLAR GENERAL IN JOSHUA TREE

Big news!

In mid-June, the pro-Dollar General side won an Appellate Court ruling against the Joshua Tree Downtown Business Alliance [JTDBA], a grassroots group of Joshua Tree residents, friends and neighbors who have been fighting Dollar General’s plan to locate a store here for over four years.

This morning, the JTDBA’s Celeste Doyle reported that this Monday, Aug. 22, JTDBA is going to appeal that decision to California’s State Supreme Court:

Our attorney advises that a Petition for [California State] Supreme Court Review will be filed Monday.
We will post the Petition when we get a copy.

  1. Karl Weimer says:

    An obscenity of a chain. Not even a true dollar store (better deals can be had most anywhere else), Dollar General’s Brutalist architecture, signage, and empty parking lots telegraph: “Ghetto in the making.” We already have three of these eyesores within several miles of Joshua Tree. We don’t need or want another within our city limits.
