Effective until further notice, all parks in the City of Stanton will be temporarily closed to support state and local efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Seniors are welcome to visit City Hall to receive frozen meals offered through OC Meals on Wheels. Additionally, our home-delivered meal service continues to operate and deliver meals Monday-Thursday to home-bound seniors in our community. If you, or a senior you know, is in need of a nutritious meal, please call the Community Services Department at (714) 890-4270 to schedule drop-off or pick-up.   

We’re also seeing our neighborhood markets step up by offering special shopping hours for seniors before their stores open to the general public. Please see the infographic below for details.

During these uncertain times, we are relaxing some enforcement of parking violations and will suspend ticketing of cars on street sweeping days or for parking in a permit zone without a permit. On street sweeping days, we ask that everyone do their best to move their cars to allow for a thorough cleaning of the streets. We will continue to enforce violations that pose a risk to public safety and health. Those include parking in front of fire hydrants, along red curbs, in disabled/handicap stalls without a placard, parking in alleys and in areas with road maintenance. We ask you to do your part and park responsibly, be courteous to others and be mindful of public safety.

City Hall remains temporarily closed to the public; however, staff is available via email or phone. City services, such as OC Sheriff’s Department, OC Fire Authority, street sweeping, electric and water service will continue as usual with no disruption.
