Renovation of the Family Resource Center took another step forward Tuesday night as the Stanton City Council awarded a contract for the work.

The council voted 5-0 in favor of the bid of $684,400 submitted by A2Z Construction. That was termed the “lowest responsible bid” and was about 8.7 percent below the engineer’s estimate of $750,000.

Construction could begin in March.

The center is located at 11832 Santa Paul St., north of Chapman Avenue and west of Beach Boulevard.

Among the renovations planned for the center are new LED exterior lighting, improved gate access points, new air conditioning units, replacement of indoor lighting, evaluation and upgrade for ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliance, painting of the interior, new ceiling tiles, new blinds and window tint and new flooring including vinyl and carpeting.

Most of the funding for this project will come from a federal Community Development Block Grant.

Landscape renovation – to include playground equipment, rubberized surfaces, benches and trash receptacles – will be handled in a separate project.
