DELANO, Calif. - Move over Outlets at Tejon, Delano city officials are excited to announce the approval of a major retail shopping and entertainment complex.
Over a year ago the city began developing an environmental impact report of the second phase of the Grapevine Development. The first phase was the Walmart, retail shopping and fast food restaurants off of Woollomes Avenue.
The proposed development is a 328,000 ft.² community lifestyle center, that will include a 12-screen movie theater, restaurants, grocery store, and retail shopping.
City leaders are encouraged by the proposed development, because they say it will boost the economy and add jobs.
"In Delano, we have to stop the leakage, and when you want a nice environment like this, you have to drive elsewhere. This is going to create that environment. People are going to be proud and excited and want to stay here," said Joe Aguirre, councilmember.
No official word on which retailers will be coming to the development.
City officials say the ball is now in the developers court to break ground and begin construction.
