What's Up in Stallion Springs?
February 29, 2020
The Stallion Springs CERT team moved to their new location on Saturday, Feb. 22. The team met at 8 a.m. in the old headquarters on Bold Venture Drive to begin the move to the new headquarters. The new 40 by 70-foot building is located directly behind the Community Center. While there is still a lot of work to be completed, the County has approved a Temporary Occupancy permit for the new building. David Cox and Larry Heasle, the logistics team, coordinated the move, which was completed in only six hours.
The group would like to thank CSD General Manager, David Aranda, for his help in obtaining the temporary approval. The team is still looking for additional funds to complete the interior of the building.
