Facts about Stanton
Stanton is a city located in western Orange County, California. The population was 38,186 at the 2010 census, up from 37,403 at the 2000 census. The city was incorporated in 1956 and operates under the Council-Manager form of government, providing a full range of municipal services. Stanton is bounded by Cypress on the west, Anaheim on the north, and east, and Garden Grove on the east and south.
The area was incorporated into the first City of Stanton in 1911. It was decided to dis-incorporate in 1924. The motivation for giving up cityhood seems to be that it would relieve city taxpayers from the financial burden of building roads. As an unincorporated area, roads were paid for by the state. Also the main motivation for the 1911 incorporation — the city of Anaheim's 1911 plan to build a "sewage farm" west of their city — was no longer relevant. The costs of cityhood were greater than the benefit.
In the early 1950s, the area had experienced a post-war population boom, and in May 1956 the citizens decided to incorporate into today's City of Stanton. The first city was around 16 square miles, and today's Stanton is a bit over three square miles. The cost of being incorporated into a city is still a salient issue in this part of the county. There are many small areas around Stanton which are unincorporated and receive their services from the County of Orange.
The city of Stanton mitigates the high costs of cityhood for a relatively small population by contracting out municipal services. Most of the police services and fire protection are provided by the Orange County's Sheriff's Department and Orange County Fire Authority respectively. Ambulance service is provided by a private company, Care Ambulance Service. Stanton had formed its own police department when the city incorporated in 1956, but a union strike citing poor working conditions was originally reported as the major cause of its disbanding (and takeover by the Sheriff's Department) in 1988. The city's crime rate has decreased 40% from 2007 to 2013.
