Through unhappy neighbors and Maple Grove POA, the residents of and around Maple Grove community have learned that a Payless Liquor store is planned to be built in the lot directly adjacent to the entrance to Maple Grove.
A store of this negative connotation and in that location is not appropriate. It is not in keeping with a residential area.
It is easy to understand that there will be an increase in traffic that will directly and negatively impact residents who use the entrance to Maple Grove. Noisy trucks will be unloading shipments, too. Furthermore, a liquor store can bring possible robbery and other crime to the neighborhood. It will not have a good impact on property values either.
A meeting to protest this store will be held on Oct. 17 at 6:30 p.m. at Whitestown Town Hall on Whitestown Parkway. We expect further protests and negative fallout if Whitestown Town Hall continues with its decision to allow this building to take place and they ignore the resident’s complaints.
