Resolutions to apply for a grant for improving Stanton Central Park and the Dotson Park Splash Pad were approved at Tuesday’s meeting of the Stanton City Council.

The vote was 5-0.

According to estimates, $450,000 will be required to complete the renovation of the tennis courts and address concerns with existing infrastructure surrounding the courts in Central Park. Another $425,000 will be required to complete the replacement of the splash pad at Dotson Park. 

The grant funding requires that applicants match with 50 percent of the cost of the project, meaning that Stanton would need to provide $437,500. That much is available from the general fund, park in-lieu fees fund or the American Rescue Plan Fund.
