Overnight parking on some portions of Main Street has been banned, following a decision by the Stanton City Council Tuesday evening.

Several businesses claimed that the existing two-hour parking limit west of Beach Boulevard was difficult to enforce. Additionally, they said that nearby residents routinely parked overnight in front of their businesses, making no parking available for customers in the morning.

The council:

  • Restricted overnight parking on the north side of Main Street from the alley between Flower Avenue and Beach Boulevard to Chestnut Avenue, as well as on the south side of Main Street from Flower to Court Avenue.
  • Renewed authorization for virtual public meetings due to COVID-19
  • Awarded a $33,784 construction contract to J. Kim Electric Inc for lighting upgrades at City Hall.
  • Appointed Mayor David Shawver to serve as the city’s voting delegate for the Southern California Association of Governments Regional Conference General Assembly.
  • Approved budget adjustments and changes to the staffing plan, which includes two new positions, shifting building inspections and plan check services from a contracted service to a service provided by city staff.
  • Introduced an ordinance laying out revised council electoral district lines, under California and federal Voting Rights Acts.

The council considered three different council electoral maps and ultimately chose the map that splits districts by major streets, keeping neighborhoods together.

“We don’t want to make this more convoluted than it has to be. This map is simple,” said Councilmember Carol Warren.

A second reading of the redistricting ordinance will take place at the City Council meeting March 22 at 6:30 p.m.
