Santa Clarita has started work on a project to add 27 new parking spaces to the Valencia Library — and in the process, some tress are being taken out.

The city hired a contractor to remove 16 of the smaller trees at the library site near the intersection of Valencia Boulevard and Magic Mountain Parkway, according to city spokeswoman Gail Ortiz.

Ortiz said the larger sycamore trees near the site will not be removed, and additional trees will be planted to offset the trees that are being removed.

“As part of the landscape piece of this project, we are adding 23 new trees and we are planting more than 300 new shrubs,” Ortiz said.

The Valencia Library parking lot work also includes new lights and a public art piece at the site, according to a project proposal approved by the Santa Clarita City Council earlier this year.

The project is expected to be complete in October, Ortiz said.
