Well, it’s official. Jim Wermers has purchased The Center shopping and office plaza in Borrego Springs and is going full tilt into renovations.

“I want to replace the non-native shrubbery and trees and replace them with more eco- and water friendly native desert plants,” he said. If you hadn’t noticed all the bushes missing from the front of The Center, don’t feel bad.

“I want to replace those ugly Center signs, too. There’s a lot to do. We’ve got to remove the septic system and hook up to the sewers, repair the site and eave lighting and repair and paint the eaves and roofing. Eventually I want to repaint the buildings and, when the engineering and permitting are completed, rework the parking lot and bring the handicapped parking up to code.” Well, we’ll be watching and keeping you up to date.
