Another vacant, underutilized property, located at the end of Orangewood Avenue at 9,450 sq feet, will likely be developed into a parkette.

The council is expected to:

  • Award a contract to BFB Design Group to provide consulting services for Orangewood Parkette, at a maximum amount of $89,060 and appropriate $109,100 from the Park in Lieu Fees Fund, adding the project to the city’s fiscal year budget.

The council will hold a public hearing, considering revisions to district electoral boundaries, as required under the California and federal Voting Rigts Act. Under the law, Stanton must hold four public hearings to ensure minority populations are aware of redistricting efforts.

The fourth public hearing will be held on March 8 at the regularly scheduled meeting. The council will also consider a resolution prohibiting overnight parking on Main Street from Flower to Sycamore Avenue, as well as a resolution allowing for angled parking between Rose Street and Flower Avenue.

Additionally, staff will make a presentation about Stanton’s share of the American Rescue Plan Act, reviewing updates to the allocation of funds.
