The NEW Village Center
The new Village Center has already started its transformation into a new productive center. This aerial view shows the that Mimi’s Cafe, Wendy’s, Sizzler, Kim’s Piano and other partial buildings have been removed from the property. The project is already ahead of schedule and removal of the Acapulco and Red Robin structures are just around the corner.
If you happened to hear large explosions and chain saws last Saturday it was probably our Orange Sheriff’s Department and Orange County Firefighters practicing their forced entry and rescue skills on the empty buildings. This provided them an opportunity to sharpen their rescue procedures. It was an exciting day for them because they don’t often get a chance for doing live exercises. As Mayor of Stanton it was a big victory our city after working 17 years to finally rebuild our Village Center into a productive development.
