Funding from the American Rescue Plan Act passed by Congress earlier this year may soon have specific impacts in Stanton.

On the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting of the city council are two items for consideration that would include spending money from the ARPA.

The council will be asked to approve a resolution to allocate $173,000 of those federal funds for an outdoor fitness court at Stanton Park.

Additionally, the council will consider a funding commitment of $2.5 million of ARPA money for a partnership with the County of Orange and Jamboree Housing Corporation to acquire the Rivera Motel on Beach Boulevard in Stanton for use – after rehabilitation – and conversion into “supportive” housing for the homeless.

Also on the agenda is a request from Councilmember Hong Alyce Van (District 2) to discuss televising /broadcasting city council meetings for the public. A public hearing to get input on the process of redistricting for council seats will also be held.

Tuesday’s meeting will be held in person with a special study session at 5:30 p.m., followed by a closed session at 6 p.m. and a regular session at 6:30 p.m. The public hearing is scheduled for 6:45 p.m.
