The city of Santa Clarita's $1.1-billion development plan was dealt a fresh setback Friday, as a Superior Court judge tentatively ruled that the city's earthquake recovery plans went beyond the scope of the disaster. Judge David A. Horowitz's unsigned review came only a few weeks after a state appeals court shot down the plan on different grounds. City officials have vowed to appeal that ruling and seemed undaunted by the new challenge in Horowitz's comments.

The city has received a federal grant of more than $4.6 million to help with earthquake recovery and wants to know how to spend it. Public meetings have been scheduled for 5 p.m. today at Canyon Country Park and 2 p.m. Tuesday in City Hall for Santa Clarita residents to offer suggestions. The grant is the fourth largest made by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to municipalities hammered by the Northridge earthquake.

A state appeals court has stalled Santa Clarita's $1.1 billion earthquake recovery and redevelopment plan, saying the city sidestepped environmental laws. City officials expressed disappointment Thursday, saying the ruling by the 2nd District Court of Appeal could delay earthquake repair and reconstruction projects as much as a year and perhaps longer, as the city exhausts legal options or completes environmental reports. "An appeal is probably appropriate," Mayor Carl Boyer said. The Dec.

City officials are having difficulty finding hundreds of mobile home residents displaced by last month's earthquake who are now eligible for free repairs to their damaged dwellings. The Federal Emergency Management Agency will spend between $4 million and $6 million to restore up to 800 mobile homes that were knocked off their foundations in Santa Clarita during the Northridge quake, city officials estimate. But in order for the work to be done, residents must first approve it.

The city of Santa Clarita will spend more than $1 billion in local property taxes over the next 45 years on an ambitious plan to recover from the Northridge earthquake, while simultaneously improving its infrastructure, redeveloping blighted areas and building affordable housing. The City Council adopted the Santa Clarita community recovery plan by a 4-0 vote on Tuesday. Councilwoman Jill Klajic was absent.

A Superior Court judge has ruled that Santa Clarita's $1.1-billion redevelopment plan qualifies for a disaster-related exemption to the California Environmental Quality Act, despite its inclusion of projects that aren't for disaster recovery. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert H. O'Brien's decision dismissed the first of two lawsuits the Castaic Lake Water Agency has filed against Santa Clarita's Community Recovery Plan.

Federal officials have so far approved the city's requests for about half the estimated $12 million of federal disaster assistance needed to repair public facilities damaged by the Northridge earthquake.

The delegation visiting from the Balkans took pictures and stood in the shadow of the concrete freeway overpasses repaired after the Northridge earthquake. They huddled intently around George Caravalho, Santa Clarita's city manager, as he explained how the structure over Gavin Canyon was finished in four months. "Is it true?" asked an incredulous Stjepan Dujmovic, a municipal official from Croatia.

It's easy, here, to see who lives where. The rows of neat tract houses, wide yards and basketball hoops in Valencia driveways bear witness to the good life in the middle-class suburbs. The new mall is on the main road. The first language is English and the people are mostly white. East Newhall, in contrast, is dotted with rambling apartment buildings, pawnshops and vacant stores. The primary language is Spanish and most of the people are brown. When the earthquake hit last Jan.

Repairs are complete or ongoing on slightly more than half of the structures damaged here in the Northridge earthquake, city building officials announced Monday. Residents have requested about 6,000 permits for work ranging from puttying small cracks to elevating a home to lay a new foundation, said Dick Kopecky, deputy building official for Santa Clarita's Earthquake Recovery Unit. "I think it has gone along rapidly," Kopecky said.
