Dining options in Sanford will expand later this summer when two fast-causal restaurants open in the Marketplace at Seminole Towne Center.
Chipotle Mexican Grill, which has developed a loyal following for its use of organic ingredients, and Giraffas Brazilian Steaks & Burgers, a new restaurant concept in Central Florida, will open in a newly constructed building located at the 308,571-squre-foot retail center anchored by Target.
Mark McCarty has yet to meet with city officials to determine what, if any, action needs to be taken after the District 1 Sanford City Commissioner spent $1,500 on a questionable mailing.
Two weeks ago Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett asked City Manager Norton Bonaparte and City Attorney William Colbert to meet with McCarty after discovering McCarty used taxpayer money to mail about 4,000 post cards to newly registered voters in District 1. Triplett also asked McCarty to repay the $1,500 in postage because the expense was not budgeted (“McCarty asked to repay city funds”).
Business owners along Sanford Avenue were upset when they learned the city of Sanford planned to close their street on March 3 for as long as four months to complete a $2.5 million streetscape project. (“City’s bumbling threatens local businesses”)
Tempers flared at times during a Feb. 25 meeting, the first in series of regularly scheduled meetings between city officials and business owners to discuss the project.
