HOUSING PROGRAM UPDATE
ELIMINATION OF THE STANTON REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY
Due to the California State Legislature’s elimination of Redevelopment Agencies in California, all housing programs offered by the Stanton Redevelopment Agency have been canceled. These programs include: all Homeowner Rebate Programs, Mobile Home Grants, Emergency Grants, Homeowner Rehabilitation Loan Program, and the Neighborhood Clean-Up Program.
The City of Stanton believes these programs have been a valuable asset to the community and have been of great benefit to the nearly one thousand residents who have participated in them. The City of Stanton and the Stanton Redevelopment Agency have opposed the Legislature’s decision to adopt ABX1 26 which eliminated Redevelopment in California and worked to have the California Supreme Court overturn the legislation. Unfortunately, the California Supreme Court failed to do so, which will result in local tax dollars being sent to Sacramento instead of being invested locally.
We want to thank you for your interest in our programs and it has been our pleasure to serve the residents of Stanton.
