Stanton Central Park was funded purely through the procurement of a State Prop 84 grant, restricted bonds and park-in-lieu funds restricted for building new parks.
The City has successfully created a Public-Private Partnership Model specifically related to the on-going maintenance and utility payments for Stanton Central Park. Stanton City Manager, James A. Box expresses, “Finding a way to fund these on-going expenses has been a top priority for the last year. I am proud to say that we were successful in securing over $100,000 for the annual maintenance and utility costs of Stanon Central Park, by thinking outside the box.”
With support from our local partners, we have enhanced our Public-Private Partnerships to create a true model of sustainability.
A special thank you to our new park sponsors, Rowntree Gardens and WPower for their generosity.
