County supervisors are today expected to give Newhall Land Development Inc. the green light to start building homes in Landmark Village, the first phase of Newhall Ranch.
Three recommendations regarding the land development are on today’s budget at the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors meeting in Los Angeles.
All three are expected to be approved.
People for and against the project had an opportunity to voice their opinions in October, when the board listened to public comment.
Today’s recommendations calling on the board to approve the developer’s “vesting tentative map,” which outlines details of the building project and the conditional-use permits requested of the county in order to carry it out.
In considering the recommendations, supervisors are also expected to approve changes the project is expected to make to the county’s general plan.
In October, supervisors indicated they would likely approve the recommendations after they heard from a variety of people representing different points of view about Newhall Ranch.
The proposed zoning changes would usher in the creation of 422 lots on about 295 acres. The lots would mean 270 single-family homes, 744 condominiums and 430 apartments, along with 16 commercial lots.
The plan for Landmark Village, Phase 1 of Newhall Ranch, also calls for 119 lots for open space, plus at least one fire station, park and school.
Newhall Ranch is a master-planned community from the same firm that planned and developed Valencia.
After its projected 25- to 30-year construction period, it would be home to more than 20,000 residences west of Interstate 5 and south of Highway 126.
