The community of Leona Valley is located in the southwestern portion of the Antelope Valley, adjacent to the National Forest, and is bounded by the City of Palmdale to the north and east. Community residents are concerned about urbanization of the area and wish to remain in an unincorporated rural community with a unique identity. Some portions of the community are partially developed with light agricultural uses and single-family homes on large lots. Other portions are largely undeveloped, are generally not served by existing infrastructure, contain environmental resources, such as Significant Ecological Areas and Hillside Management Areas, and are subject to safety constraints, such as the San Andreas Fault and Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones.
A more detailed description of the Leona Valley community can be found in the Community-Specific Land Use Concepts chapter of the Antelope Valley Area Plan.
