Local News in Brief : A City Nears Birth

December 15, 1987

With a great deal of pomp and circumstance, Santa Clarita will officially become Los Angeles County's 85th city at a ceremony tonight at College of the Canyons in Valencia.

More than 2,500 people are expected to attend the 7:30 p.m. festivities, featuring music by three bands, a parade, presentations from county and state officials and the inauguration of Santa Clarita's first City Council members.

"We're getting started with as much hoopla as possible," said Santa Clarita City Formation Committee spokeswoman Connie Worden, noting that many residents have waited more than 25 years for cityhood.

The formation committee worked for two years to get the cityhood proposal on the ballot Nov. 2, when voters overwhelmingly approved the measure.
