|Looking northwest from Rockport Road, one can see the large parcel where a Stater Bros. market would anchor a commercial center on the southeast corner of Newport Road and Menifee Road. The intersection is in the center background.|
City Manager Rob Johnson said all parties are prepared to move forward with the application process for the business, which would anchor a large complex on what is now a vacant lot adjacent to The Lakes community.
In a previous interview, Mayor Scott Mann said the center is expected to include other retail businesses and restaurants. This is the first application announced by city officials.
It is very early in the planning process for this project, so there is no timetable for the start or completion of construction.
