More greening is coming to Stanton.

When the Stanton Planning Commission meets on Wednesday, June 1 it will take action on a list of projects planned for 2022-2023 to make sure they comply with the city’s general plan.

Included are the creation of a “parkette” at Orangewood Avenue and Santa Rosalia Avenue that would adding landscaping and a children’s playground. Additionally, Premier Park on Chapman Avenue would receive replacement of the playground and installation of a new rubber play surface at the playground.

New swings would be installed, along with new landscaping and lighting and a new water fountain.

A project called “Greening Stanton” is also envisioned, with shrubs planted to conceal block walls along major streets. The first stretch would be along westbound Chapman Avenue from Santa Rosalia Street to Santa Paula Street.

In 2023-2024, the “greening” would come to westbound Katella Avenue in front of La Lampara Mobile Home Park.

Other projects under consideration are street rehabilitation along Katella Avenue (between Beach Boulevard and Dale Avenue); Cerritos Avenue (Knott Avenue and Beach) and Dale Avenue (Cerritos Avenue and Katella Avenue).

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