Another Round for Newhall Ranch

New, 27 comments

Today the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for Newhall Ranch is being made available (you can see it at this web site here), reports the Santa Clarita Signal. Via the paper: "While its parent company deals with bankruptcy proceedings, Newhall Land and Farming Co. is moving ahead with its Valencia-sized development west of Santa Clarita...Company officials expect construction to begin on the 21,000-home, 12,000-acre community with the next three or four years." Newhall Ranch was originally supposed to break ground in 2006, but lawsuits and approvals delayed the project, according to the Contra Costa Times. There's now a 60-day comment period. More via the paper: "The state and federal EIRs are separate from environmental documents approved for the county and other public agencies. Following the public review process, they will be finalized by the California Department of Fish and Game and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers." [Signal/Contra Costa Times]
