The Santa Clarita City Council has scaled back a developer's plans to build 1,452 condominiums in Canyon Country, saying the 135-acre site might be better suited for 600 to 800 residential units. After a 4 1/2-hour public hearing Wednesday night, the council set aside the original proposal by G.H. Palmer Associates, plus seven alternatives drafted last week by city planners and company representatives to address concerns of nearby homeowners who complained that the project was too big.

A Brentwood-based developer who demolished the last 19th century home on Bunker Hill without a permit will be barred from building on the site for five years, according to Los Angeles city officials. David Keim, the chief code enforcement officer at the city's Department of Building and Safety, said he believed that it was the first time his agency had invoked the so-called scorched-earth ordinance to halt construction on the site of an illegally demolished structure.
