Those who frequent downtown Titusville have seen significant construction in the space that formerly housed Family Video on West Spring Street.

City Code Enforcement/Building Inspector Skip Welling said as Dollar General has had its signage permit approved by the city, stickers with the company logo have started to cover the windows of the building.

According to the building permit from Construction Code Inspectors Inc., the city’s contractor that does commercial and industrial permits, Dollar General has authorization for “internal renovations.” The permit also authorizes Dollar General for building, fire protection, plumbing, demolition and electrical work.

Welling told The Herald that as Dollar General is in compliance with zoning, unless unseen problems arise, he expects the new Dollar General to open “soon.”

The new site still has to be inspected by the city’s contractor.

The Herald reached out to Dollar General for comment, at time of publication no response had been received.

Would have been nice to see a Trader Joe’s go in that spot.
