Study session for the city

Meeting scheduled to review draft noise element

City officials are bringing their long-term vision back into focus Tuesday with a study session on the updated general plan being shaped by Santa Clarita and Los Angeles County.

A study session is set for 5:30 p.m. to review the draft noise element of the One Valley, One Vision plan. This will mark the fifth study session in the past year covering the plan.

The development of the plan is a combination of the city and county's vision for the big picture of growth in the Santa Clarita Valley, which comprises some 250 square miles and a population of about 250,000 people.

The document will serve as the Santa Clarita Valley area plan for the county and the new general plan for the city, addressing population density, public safety, noise, conservation and open space.

Last updated in 1990, the county's valley area plan governs Stevenson Ranch, West Ridge, Castaic, Agua Dulce, parts of Canyon Country and the other unincorporated areas in the Santa Clarita Valley. The city of Santa Clarita adopted a general plan of its own in 1991, four years after it became a city.

The commission has a relatively light agenda for its regular meeting.

Items up for approval include a request to operate a pawn shop at 28015 Smyth Drive and a conditional use permit to allow alcohol sales at 18760 Flying Tiger Drive in Canyon Country.

Also on the table is a requested general plan amendment for the potential annexation of 1,515 acres north of Highway 14 between Sand Canyon and Agua Dulce Canyon roads. That area includes land marked out for the development of up to 1,116 single-family homes.

The proposed general plan amendment would change the area's zoning to residential low, residential estate, community commercial and open space.

The proposed developments have been approved by the county or are under review, according to an agenda report.
