Members of the Los Angeles County Local Agency Formation Commission voted Thursday to approve Santa Clarita’s annexation of the North Copper Hill area.

With that vote, Santa Clarita completes its largest annexation to date, bringing 2,475 acres and more than 9,500 new residents into the city.

The annexation also brings Santa Clarita’s total population to 203,300, making Santa Clarita the third largest city in Los Angeles County behind only Los Angeles and Long Beach, according to a city release.

“We are excited to welcome the residents of the North Copper Hill area into the city,” Mayor Frank Ferry said in a news release. “We take great pride in offering a high quality of life for our residents.”

The annexed area is generally located east of San Francisquito Canyon Road, west of Bouquet Canyon Road, and south of the boundary of the Angeles National Forest.

The area also includes three county parks, three elementary schools and two Los Angeles County probation camps.

LAFCO originally reviewed the annexation area in April and determined the city is fiscally sound enough to expand its services to cover the area.

The total assessed value for the newly annexed land was $449,633,438 in 2011, according to a LAFCO staff report.
