Here are the Newhall Redevelopment Committee's newest members (from left to right): Larry Bird, Anthony Campbell, Vladimir Victorio, Kevin Korenthal, Dennis Verner, Phil Ellis, and John Grannis.

The city of Santa Clarita is proud to announce the new installation and reinstatement of seven members to the Newhall Redevelopment Committee.

After careful consideration, the Santa Clarita City Council voted two new community members and reinstated five returning members to the Committee. City Council also recognized Susan Shapiro for her previous service to the group.

Anthony Campbell, a 25-year resident, is among the newly-appointed members. Campbell currently sits on the Associated General Contractors board in Los Angeles and brings an extensive background in real estate and construction to the Committee.

20-year Santa Clarita resident Vladimir Victorio was also newly-appointed to serve on the Newhall Redevelopment Committee. Victorio has volunteered and taken part in numerous economic development projects in the San Fernando Valley and looks forward to bringing his experience to Santa Clarita and Old Town Newhall.

In addition to Campbell and Victorio, five Committee members were reinstated to the board.

John Grannis, Kevin Korenthal, and Dennis Verner will continue to serve on the committee in addition to Larry Byrd and Philip Ellis, who have been a part of the Newhall Redevelopment Committee since its inception.

"The Newhall Redevelopment Committee is vital to the City as it reshapes Old Town Newhall," said Mayor Frank Ferry. "All appointed members were carefully considered and will each bring a unique form and level of expertise to the Committee and further efforts to revitalize the Newhall area."

City Council members Marsha McLean and Laurene Weste recognized departing, long-time Committee member Susan Shapiro at a reception prior to the April 6 Newhall Redevelopment Committee meeting for her exemplary previous service on the panel.

The Newhall Redevelopment Committee is made up of 13 members with an interest in redevelopment issues within the Newhall Redevelopment Project Area. Members are involved in a number of important issues and advise the Redevelopment Agency on the revitalization within the project area.

The Committee also assists with the implementation of the Downtown Newhall Specific Plan, designed to help transform Old Town Newhall into a thriving, mixed-use, pedestrian-oriented Arts and Entertainment District with a series of economic engines.
