Los Angeles County supervisors voted 3 to 2, with Supervisors Pete Schabarum and Deane Dana dissenting, to allow Santa Clarita Valley-area residents to vote Nov. 3 on cityhood. The proposed 40-square-mile city of Santa Clarita would be the 85th in the county. With an estimated 100,000 residents, it would include the communities of Newhall, Saugus, Valencia and a portion of Canyon Country.

There's a polite little war going on in the Antelope Valley these days. On one side is the City of Lancaster--the "big guy"--an established and growing city of 70,000 residents that has extended its sphere of influence over about 200 square miles of high desert land. On the other side is the City of Palmdale--"the little guy"--an upstart town expanding so fast that its population has soared from 15,000 to about 40,000 in just three or four years.

Predictions that Los Angeles County will grow in 1987 may be accurate in a way that urban planners did not anticipate. A luxury housing project in Calabasas may cause the county to grow in area, as well as population, for the first time in 137 years. Home Savings of America has petitioned to remove an 8 1/2-square-mile parcel of ranch land from Ventura County and annex it to Los Angeles County so the land can be developed.
