Draft OVOV Documents Ready For Public Review
The long-awaited draft One Valley One Vision General Plan and draft OVOV program environmental impact report are now available online on the City's website by clicking here.
The plan, which creates a single vision and guidelines for growth and development of the Santa Clarita Valley and its surrounding area, has been created after years of discussions and public meetings.
When approved, the OVOV plan will replace the Santa Clarita Valley Area plan as a component of Los Angeles County’s General Plan, which was adopted in 1984 and updated in 1990.

According to the plan, “the major goals of the OVOV join planning effort were to achieve greater cooperation between the County and City, coordinated planning for roadways, infrastructure and resource management and enhanced quality of life for all who live and work in the Santa Clarita Valley.”
One Valley One Vision grandfathers in special standards districts already established in Sand and Placerita Canyons; new districts or development proposals being considered will have to meet any new guidelines established by OVOV.
The plan includes a total of 485.4 square miles: 235 square miles of that are part of the Angeles National Forest; 52.68 square miles encompass the City of Santa Clarita and 29.48 square miles fall under the city’s Sphere of Influence, areas that could reasonably be annexed because of their proximity to the City.
The expanded 90-day public review period for this project has begun and it concludes on December 22, 2010. Hard copies of these documents are available at City Hall and local libraries.
