New Cell Tower, New Doughnut Shop May Be Coming To Century

March 21, 2018

A new cell tower and a new doughnut shop may be coming to Century.

The Century Town Council has given a preliminary non-binding nod for a new Verizon tower to be located at the town’s sewage treatment plant off Jefferson Avenue. A company representing Verizon requested the preliminary approval for a 180-foot tall tower.

Verizon is seeking a 25 year lease for an area about 80 x 80 feet, and the company will pay the town $9,600 per year if the deal is finalized. Town officials said they also want to explore a possible discount on their Verizon service.

The town has also received a development application for a doughnut shop at 8321 North Century Boulevard. The business, “Sunrise Donut”, would be located in the former location of a Chinese restaurant.

Both the cell tower and the doughnut shop are in the application or pre-application stages and must continue with the permitting process before becoming a reality.

    I think this is great news. Just think how many more ECSO we will get up this way.

    Oh and Jennufer, you really should consider changing cell phone plans if you’re paying $9,600 per month LOL.

    “People need jobs.” How many people will this donut shop employ? Be realistic in your expectations of one small employer. “There is enough drive through traffic to sustain good businesses…” True enough, but when that traffic “drives through” and refuses to stop, no business can survive

    The Chinese place did fine financially, just figured they could do better in Miami.

    Poor management or poor food closed both eating establishments down. It was not the fact that they were located in Century.There is enough drive through traffic to sustain good businesses..Problem is..getting good management consistantly..and good work staff..both becoming more and more rare across the country

    @Jerry the Chinese restaurant food was not all that good…if it was it would still be open. In a small town like Century…any food service needs to be really good. Good enough to attract the surrounding communities.

    It would be nice to have a Verizon tower in Century. The service is poor there. Also would be nice to have a donut shop there too! People need jobs. It would be a wonderful place for Century. God Bless!
