    When this came in front of the planning commission on 9/18/12 they went against Staff recommendation to approve the application. The project meets city code, is consistent with the general plan and the rural neighborhood which has many smaller parcels and larger homes recently built and was to remain equestrian zoned.
    The planning commission openly admitted that they had conversations with Los Angeles Judge Ann I. Jones, regarding her opposition to a lot spilt of the property located at 24837 Quigley Canyon Rd, Newhall CA. which is adjacent to Jones residence which she shares with Dr. Maryilyn Ruman for the past year and a half.
    The applicant, Curtis Hairell spent nearly $50,000 dollars in plans, fees and environmental reports and worked very closely with the City of Santa Clarita Planning Staff to design a site plan to split a 2.02 acre parcel which currently has a 2500 SF home with a 2500 SF garage/barn into two 1 acre parcels and to replace the garage/barn with a newly built home of the same size.
    This project is conservative project compared to many other developments within the Placerita Canyon Special Standards District which includes churches, a college, a manufactured home park, oil wells and drillings, a movie studio amongst many small and large homes throughout the area. Without having a lot line adjustment and leaving as a 2.02 acre parcel the current structures can double in size and improvements without approval of Planning Commission or Council.
    In my opinion the Planning commission took political intimidation by a Judge who has several Santa Clarita developments in her courtroom . Curtis was WRONGED by the very community he lived for the past 30 years. This resulted in a loss of life and real property rights.
    The applicant’s family is appealing to the “elected” City Council and it is in this forum they can right the wrong that the three “appointed” planning commissioners made.

    • it was two homes totalling 4 on the whole lot.

        Sherrie, You can see by Google earth that there is currently only one house and one old barn which has been recently damamged by the oak tree that is in poor health.on a 2.02 acre parcel. If you read the application, it is proposed to split the 2.02 acre parcel into two 1 acre parcels with 2 seperate APN’s and at that point there would be one house with a pool on the one acre (seperate APN) which is consistent with most of the properties in the area and I was going to puchase from my brother and then he would build his 2500 sf house on his seperate 1 acre. My brother and I seperately owned side by side properties for 5 years in Sunland we were the best of neighbors. I moved out of the area for the past 10 years and was looking to move back and we wanted that type of living arrangement again. Where do you get 4 homes on whole lot?

  2. Lou says:

    I’m writing this letter because I feel the people of Santa Clarita need to be aware of the political corruption that has taken place within the planing commission concerning a perfectly legal lot split that was opposed by a public official Judge Ann Jones who just happens to own the parcel next to were this totally legal lot split was to take place. The applicant for the lot split Curtis Hairell went through all the proper procedures to acquire this split of a 2.2 acre parcel into 2- 1acre parcels and was in compliance with the city Santa Clarita meeting all requirements . All requirements except the personal requirements of the honorable Ann jones. As a good neighbor Mr. Hairell went to his neighbor to share his plan. and he was told that she only liked looking at the 2500 sq.ft. barn and replacing it with a home the same size was not acceptable. She also expressed that if a family moved in with children that was unacceptable as well. she only liked looking at horses. She also tried to make a ridiculously small offer of $100 000 for property that is worth 3 times that much. She also made it clear that if he tried to fight this she would break him in court. As a concerned citizen I really think all cases should be heard fairly no matter who lives next to us. I also would like to thank the 2. member of the planning commission that looked at this issue with an open mind. Charles Hefferman andTim Burkhart, who voted in favor of the lot split regardless of the pressure from the opposition. I think we all agree that there should be an equal playing field for all of us . In this instance this was not the case. Their are numerous lots in this neighborhood that have been split in this same manor, It just depends on who lives nextdoor.
