Crime, land use, playground

A PUBLIC HEARING on a general plan amendment allowing another 19,000 new housing units goes before the Garden Grove City Council when it meets on Tuesday (Shutterstock).

Garden Grove and Stanton city councils each have meetings set for Tuesday on serious topics such as land use and fighting crime and lighter items like new playground equipment.

Garden Grove: higher densities, new playstuff

Topping the agenda for the Garden Grove City Council will be a public hearing on general plan amendments increasing residential density in several areas of the city.

PLAY EQUIPMENT for Garden Grove Park.

The change is in response to the state-mandated Regional House Needs Assessment requiring that Garden Grove create zoning to accommodate 19,168 new dwelling units. The RHNA does not necessarily mean such housing would actually be constructed.

Also to be considered is the authorization of a purchase order to Innovative Playgrounds Company, Inc. for new playground equipment at Garden Grove Park. The cost is $261,002.46.

The council will convene at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave.

Stanton:  Call 1-800 on crime

At Tuesday’s meeting of the Stanton City Council, city leaders will take up a proposal by Vice Mayor Gary Taylor to consider creation of an “800” hotline to help residents to report criminal activity.

Also on the agenda is the second reading and approval of an ordinance authorizing angled parking on Village Center Drive from the southern city limit to Beach Boulevard.

The council will meet at 6:30 p.m. in person at City Hall, 7800 Katella Ave.
