The Valley Industry Association will be holding a luncheon, Tuesday, July 17, at 11:45 a.m. at the Valencia Country Club, located at 27330 No. Tourney Road, 91355.
The luncheon will include a presentation of Whittaker-Bermite Santa Clarita – What’s Next? The Property. The Clean-Up. The Entitlements.
Located in the center of the city of Santa Clarita lies Whittaker-Bermite, an undeveloped 996-acre site. This former munition testing and manufacturing site has contamination issues and complexity of property ownership. However, the financial responsibility for site cleanup continues to remain with the Whittaker Corporation and their successors.
The Clean Up:
The site clean-up is under the supervision of the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC).
In May 1995, the Santa Clarita City Council approved the Porta Bella Specific Plan and accompanying Development Agreement, creating vested land use entitlements on the property. These entitlements allow for the development of 1,244 single family residential units and 1,667 multi-family residential units, as well as 96 acres of commercial and business/office park uses. The Specific Plan also envisions 407 acres of open space and 42 acres of recreational uses.
One objective of the City of Santa Clarita is to ensure that whatever is ultimately developed on the site is consistent with the surrounding neighborhoods and will provide employment and economic benefit to the community as a whole. Attend the VIA Business Luncheon on Tuesday, July 17, 2018 starting at 11:45 p.m. to learn from those closest to the project what lies ahead for our City’s central area.
