The National Park Service will host a public meeting on the future of the Rim of the Valley Corridor, which includes much of the mountainous area surrounding the Santa Clarita Valley, on Sept. 21.

The meetings will kick off the Rim of the Valley Corridor Special Resource Study.

The park service will hold the meeting from 7-9 p.m. Sept. 21 at the Activities Center at the George A. Caravalho Sports Complex, 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway.

The public-comment period will continue through Oct. 29. The study process will take four years.

The study will look at the potential for expanding the boundary of Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The Santa Monica Mountains include 150,000 acres of private, local, state and federal lands. The federal government owns about 15 percent of the land.

The study area described in the authorizing legislation covers more than 650,000 acres of the mountains encircling the San Fernando, La Crescenta, Santa Clarita, Simi and Conejo valleys of Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

The study area includes the majority of Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area and portions of the Angeles National Forest that serve as the headwaters of the Los Angeles River. Approximately half of the acreage of the study area is publicly owned.
