The Newhall County Water District board will consider whether to connect its water service to a proposed development in Canyon Country and a drug store set to open in Newhall at its 6:30 p.m. meeting tonight.

The board will decide whether it will permit Pardee Homes, the owner of undeveloped property in Canyon Country, to connect and transfer ownership of its water lines to Newhall County Water District during tonight’s meeting, said Steve Cole, Newhall County Water general manager. Pardee Homes built the water infrastructure to clear the way for its proposed Spring Canyon development at the site. If connection is permitted and Pardee develops the property, Newhall County Water will add 492 single-family homes to its system, he said.

The Newhall County Water Board will also decide, during the meeting, whether to connect a proposed Walgreens in Newhall to its water system. Walgreens, like Pardee Homes, built the water infrastructure and is offering to transfer ownership of the infrastructure to the Water District in return for a water-service connection, Cole said.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Water District board room at 23780 North Pine Street in Newhall.
