The city of Santa Clarita will host a 30th-anniversary open house on the city’s official birthday, December 15, in the Century Room and Council Chambers at City Hall at 23920 Valencia Boulevard from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
This is an opportunity for our community to come together and celebrate all that 30 years of cityhood has brought to Santa Clarita.
Guests will have a chance to speak with members of the current City Council as well as some of the city founders. There will be a display of historic memorabilia, a birthday cake and a screening of a documentary by SCVTV focusing on the past 30 years.
In 1987, Santa Clarita was 39 square miles and included the communities of Saugus, Newhall, Valencia and Canyon Country. Since then, more than 30 neighborhoods have annexed to the city, making Santa Clarita more than 60 square miles and the third largest city in Los Angeles County, after Los Angeles and Long Beach.
Over the last three decades, cityhood has resulted in millions of dollars remaining in our community. These funds have enabled the city to provide new facilities, programs and services our residents want.
Some of these include 34 parks, 85 miles of off-street trails, more than 9,000 acres of preserved open space, three Metrolink stations, three libraries, two community centers, anti-drug programs for youth, hundreds of sports and recreation programs, the Aquatic Center, Skatepark, traffic and road improvements, preventing a new landfill and a new aggregate mining project, just to name a few achievements over the last 30 years.
