Opponents of a proposed off-road vehicle park in Baker and Hume canyons have scored a partial victory to keep the facility out of their back yard, but there are several more laps to go before the issue is resolved. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors last week agreed with a Parks Department report that called Baker Canyon unsuitable for the motocross track, and decided to form an advisory committee to determine what type of facility off-roaders want and where it should be.

Gov. Pete Wilson has signed legislation to pay for a study of 700 acres of Hume Canyon north of Santa Clarita as an off-road vehicle park. That site was proposed as an alternative to Whitney Canyon, near the interchange of the Golden State and Antelope Valley freeways, which had been selected earlier for the facility. "We have tried for many years to find a suitable site for off-highway activities in Los Angeles County," said Assemblyman Richard Katz (D-Sylmar), who sponsored the legislation.

The silence and starkness of Baker and Hume canyons, where the wind disturbs only an occasional quail, belies the boisterous debate about the land's future that has ensued since Los Angeles County proposed putting in a facility for off-highway vehicles. "This isn't just a couple of trails for dirt bikes," said Winthrop Taylor, who lives half a mile from the 531-acre site, just north of Santa Clarita. "We're talking about a major day-and-night, charge-admission, competition-racing facility."

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to look at an alternative site for an off-road vehicle park that had been proposed east of Santa Clarita. The alternative 700-acre site in Hume Canyon is north of Santa Clarita, near Sierra Highway. The original site was Whitney Canyon, near the interchange of the Golden State and Antelope Valley freeways. Supervisors approved a study of the alternative location at the urging of Supervisor Mike Antonovich.

The silence and starkness of Baker and Hume canyons along Sierra Highway, the wind disturbing only the occasional quail, belie the boisterous debate over the land's future. Just after the first autumn storm hit the area last week, Susan Kachelek stood on a hill overlooking the 291-acre Baker Canyon just north of Santa Clarita, musing over what she fears would occur if plans to turn the area into an off-road vehicle facility are realized.

Los Angeles County supervisors agreed Tuesday to seek state approval for an off-road vehicle park above Canyon Country, despite complaints from neighbors that the resulting traffic, noise and erosion would destroy their rural lifestyle. "The dirt bikers who come out of the city . . . have no personal stake in our community," said Rod Donkin, who lives on Baker Canyon Road near the proposed park site. "It will compromise everything about our lives, forever."

It may prove a no-win situation for Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich: Today, the county Parks and Recreation Department will pass to the supervisor the decision on where the county should establish off-road vehicle parks. No matter what Antonovich does, he is sure to displease many people.

The search for off-road vehicle park sites in northern Los Angeles County is back on again after County Supervisor Mike Antonovich postponed indefinitely consideration of three proposed locations in the Santa Clarita and Antelope valleys. "This is not the end of the line," Antonovich aide JoAnne Darcy said Monday. "We're making a real earnest effort to find some other sites."
