Vista Canyon, Historical Preservation Ordinance At Planning Commission
The Planning Commission will vote on two important issues at its regular meeting on Tuesday.
The commission will decide whether or not to approve the Vista Canyon Project, which comprises several acres in Canyon Country.
The Vista Canyon site is located at the southwest intersection of Sand Canyon Road and the 14 freeway in unincorporated Los Angeles County.

The development will be mixed use, combing both residential and commercial area.
City staff is recommending the commission approve annexing the 185 acres of Vista Canyon as well as the surrounding 2,257 acres, which include the Fair Oaks Ranch and Jakes Way neighborhoods. Ancillary homes in Sand Canyon would be included as well.
The proposed municipal historical preservation ordinance will also make its way to the commission.
The ordinance sets the procedure for receiving the designation and establishes guidelines and penalties if the site were ever relocated or demolished.
City staff, which met with the Newhall Redevelopment Committee and the SCV Historical Society during the process, is also submitting a list of suggested sites for the historical designation.
These include the Newhall Ice Company, the old jailhouse and the Perkins Court/former Signal office.
If approved, the City Council will hear both items at a later date.
Tuesday’s Planning Commission meeting begins at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
