Download Excerpt/Summary

The Specific Plan is a comprehensive - document to guide future development of the Newhall Ranch property. The document sets forth a comprehensive set of plans, development regulations, design guidelines, and implementation programs designed to produce a project consistent with the goals, objectives, and policies of the Los Angeles County General Plan and Santa Clarita Valley Area Plan, as proposed for amendment according to General Plan Amendment No. 94-087.

Flexibility has been designed into the Newhall Ranch Specific Plan to respond to the changes in society and the economic marketplace which will occur over the 25-year buildout of the community. Further, the Specific Plan establishes the regulations and standards for the protection of open areas adjacent to development and two large special resource management areas totaling approximately 6,170 acres.

This Specific Plan is regulatory in nature and serves as zoning for the Newhall Ranch community. Subsequent development plans and subdivision maps must be consistent with both this Specific Plan and the County of Los Angeles General Plan. Should there be a conflict between this Specific Plan and existing County ordinances, the provisions of the Specific Plan shall prevail. Any situation or condition not specifically and directly covered by the provisions contained within this Specific Plan shall be subject to the non-conflicting regulations of the Los Angeles County Planning and Zoning Code.

Certain modifications to the Specific Plan are permitted and shall occur in accordance with Section 3.5, Adjustment, Transfer, and Conversion Regulations and/or the Implementation Procedures set forth in Section 5.2.

As a means of ensuring the effectiveness of the mitigation measures and conditions of approval set forth in the revised Mitigation Monitoring Plans for both the Newhall Ranch Specific Plan and Water Reclamation Plant, annual reports are required. Reports, including water supply assessments, are on file with the Department of Regional Planning.
