[LACo Regional Planning] – The Board of Supervisors will conduct a public hearing on the Santa Clarita Valley Area Plan Update (aka One Valley One Vision) on Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2012, at 9:30 a.m., in Room 381B of the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration, 500 West Temple Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012. Interested persons will be given an opportunity to testify.
The Board will also consider the Final Environmental Impact Report and Mitigation Monitoring Plan associated with the project.
General description of proposal:
The Santa Clarita Valley Area Plan Update (Area Plan Update) is a component of One Valley One Vision (OVOV), a joint planning effort with the City of Santa Clarita.
Plan Amendment No. 2009-00006-(5) would repeal the current Area Plan, adopted in 1984 and subsequently amended, and would adopt the Area Plan Update that was developed through the OVOV effort. The Area Plan Update includes the following Elements: Land Use, Circulation, Conservation and Open Space, Safety, and Noise. In addition, Plan Amendment No. 2009-00006-(5) would also amend the current Countywide General Plan to clarify adopted provisions related to hillside management areas and to allow local plans, such as the Area Plan Update, to establish the allowable maximum residential densities in all hillside management areas.
Zone Change No. 2009-00009-(5) would change the zoning designations of parcels within the Bouquet Canyon, Castaic Canyon, Mount Gleason, Newhall, Sand Canyon, and Soledad Zoned Districts. This change in zoning designations is necessary to ensure that zoning is consistent with the proposed Area Plan Update. In addition, Zone Change No. 2009-00009-(5) would also amend the County Zoning Ordinance to clarify adopted provisions related to hillside management areas and to allow local plans, such the Area Plan Update, to establish the allowable maximum residential densities in all hillside management areas.
