City of Stanton Is The Island Of West Texas 8/16/13
CBS 7 News
STANTON-The City of Stanton is like an island, surrounded by farmland with very few restaurants and stores.
Many businesses are interested in building, but there’s just one problem…there’s nowhere for them to start.
According to the City’s Mayor, Justin Burch, many landowners aren’t willing to sell their land because of sentimental feelings they have with their families for many years.
Right now the city is at a standstill and trying to figure out how to fix the problem.
CBS 7 reported yesterday that the city of Stanton’s population has doubled in the recent years.
Today we’ve learned that while the population is booming…the city itself is unable to grow beyond its current city limits.
