Washington Business Journal now Reports that the Shops at Dakota Crossing could be the location for some of the city’s first Big Box Retailers. Exciting to see the interests in the community but not looking forward to the added traffic by more retailers that don’t serve the community it impacts. Starting to question why there is even a residential component to the Dakota Crossing Development. There needs to be direct access to this shopping center from Route 50 and directly back on to Route 50. It’s pointless to crowd the streets of Fort Lincoln, and cause this much wear and tear to our infrastructure for retailers that will not be frequented by the surrounding community. There are planned apartments just a few feet away from this shopping center, what good is a kayak going to do for a family that just needs a dozen eggs. I digress, I’ll save my perspective for the powers that be.
