Four years ago, economist Ron Halcrow had some bad news for Palmdale and Lancaster, the dusty desert towns that had become two of California's fastest growing cities almost overnight. At the northern edge of Los Angeles County, where dozens of spanking-new housing tracts had sprouted in the old alfalfa fields during the mid- to late 1980s, he saw dark clouds on the horizon.

Sometimes it seems as if everyone in Southern California has an agent. Now, even the city of Santa Clarita has one. Tucked into a concrete triangle formed by the Golden State and Antelope Valley freeways, Santa Clarita encompasses 43 square miles of prominent ridgelines, majestic oak trees and bedroom communities. Its population is affluent, dominated by families proud of the area's good schools and low crime rate.

The debate over a Santa Clarita growth-control measure has been a war of words so far, albeit harsh ones. But opponents of the measure are about to unsheathe what they hope will be an even more potent weapon: statistics. The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce has commissioned a USC research team to do a $20,000 study of the economic effects of the initiative. Called Measure A, it would restrict to 475 the number of new housing units approved each year in the city for the next 10 years.

Hampered by stubbornly independent leaders, a lack of funds and tension between its director and board of trustees, a center set up to help small businesses cope with the impact of Santa Clarita's first regional mall has accomplished little, according to local business owners and some board members. The Valencia Town Center mall is not scheduled to open until Sept.

Santa Clarita is a precocious 5-year-old now, the whiffs of smoke from its birthday candles still fresh, its moods constantly in flux. Like Los Angeles 45 miles to the south, it has not one personality but several. Drive all the way through the leafy, upscale community of Valencia, and you're in Newhall, with its mix of antiquity, charm and blight, or Saugus, with its tract houses and mini-malls encroaching on its rough-hewn look.

Are the yuppies coming to Santa Clarita? Some locals seem to think they're already here and it's just a matter of waking up to smell the coffee, or, if you prefer, cafe latte with a sprinkle of nutmeg. While the community is still a long way from a BMW in every garage and a Cuisinart in every kitchen, the opening in September of the Valencia Town Center shopping mall has made an indelible impression.
