Houses may be under construction in the 5,200-unit City Ranch development in west Palmdale as early as next year, representatives of Kaufman & Broad Home Corp. said Friday. The City Council approved annexation of the 2,020-acre site where the project is planned without discussion Thursday. It was Palmdale's first annexation since November, when the council approved its largest-ever addition--the 11,000-acre Ritter Ranch property.

After a spirited debate, the City Council voted to begin annexing a local neighborhood, where a convicted Los Angeles slumlord owns 72 decrepit rental houses. In a 4-1 vote to begin the months-long process, council members said Thursday that the city is better equipped to combat the area's many code violations. Los Angeles County officials after two years have won little cooperation from the property's owner, Milton Avol, a physician. Many of Avol's houses have been boarded up.

The Palmdale City Council took the first step Thursday night to annex a 12,600-acre area, paving the way for a 7,200-home development that would be one of the largest in Southern California and increase the sprawling city's size and population by almost a third. The council voted 5 to 0 to begin proceedings to annex much of the Leona Valley, west of the city, where developers propose to build the 10,625-acre Ritter Ranch project.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to transfer 20 unimproved acres of county property to Palmdale for a city park. The property, which was the site of the proposed Tejon County Park, was annexed by Palmdale in 1989. The Palmdale City Council plans to develop the property as a park and playground. The rectangular site is located near Sierra Highway and Barrel Springs Road, a few blocks east of Lake Palmdale.

The state budget crisis has prompted Palmdale lawmakers to raise a once-unthinkable question: Can Palmdale, the fastest-growing California city in the 1980s, afford to keep expanding at its once-rapid pace? Although debate over growth has long fueled civic disputes in Los Angeles and other urban areas, the premise of "more is better" has been the virtually unquestioned development creed of the Antelope Valley--until now.

Construction could begin by next October on the mammoth Ritter Ranch community planned for west Palmdale, the project's manager said Friday, following a final City Council decision to annex the area. The council, as expected, voted 4 to 1 Thursday night to add the 17-square-mile area to Palmdale, the largest annexation in the city's 30-year history. Over a period of 20 years, plans call for Ritter Ranch to grow into a community of about 20,000 residents.

The Palmdale City Council has stalled the 7,200-unit Ritter Ranch project, one of Southern California's largest planned developments, by delaying its annexation to the city. Council members decided on the delay because they fear that the state's budget problems could cut several million dollars from city revenues, which would make it difficult to provide police protection and other municipal services to a vast new area such as the 10,625-acre project.

City Ranch, a planned 5,200-unit Kaufman and Broad Home Corp. community west of Palmdale, is one step away from final approval after a county panel voted Wednesday to annex the 1,985-acre area into the city. The 5-0 decision by the county's Local Agency Formation Commission paves the way for a final annexation vote on the project June 10 by the Palmdale City Council. If built, the community would be one of the largest developed in the Antelope Valley.

Proponents of the huge Ritter Ranch project on Wednesday won their long fight to have the 10,625-acre property included in the city of Palmdale, virtually clearing the way for one of the largest residential developments in Los Angeles County history. "We're thrilled at this culmination to our three-year effort," said Peter Wenner, general manager of Ritter Park Associates, the partnership that seeks to develop the parcel, southwest of Palmdale, with 7,200 houses over 20 years.

A countywide commission took the first step Wednesday toward allowing the city of Palmdale to annex 50 square miles of largely rural land, drawing groans from residents of the scenic Leona Valley, part of which is included in the tract. The Los Angeles County Local Agency Formation Commission voted unanimously to include the area in Palmdale's sphere of influence.

Standing in a cherry orchard in full bloom Tuesday morning, members of the Leona Valley Town Council announced that they had filed a lawsuit against a developer and the city of Palmdale, attacking the environmental review of a 7,200-house development planned next to their rural community.
