Residents of Castaic want their community to become more than just another truck stop along the Golden Gate Freeway, and on Thursday they took a step in that direction by defeating a proposed 24-hour gasoline station and mini-mart. Although the area is primarily known for its string of gas stations and fast-food restaurants, inflated land prices have pushed urban sprawl toward the Santa Clarita Valley community 39 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.

The new finds, plus disclosure of a little-known 1994 sighting, has triggered a review of the Newhall Land & Farming Co.'s 20-year permit for construction in the area. But the U.S.

In an extraordinary effort by a developer to win grass-roots support, builders of a proposed 866-home project in the Santa Clarita Valley are distributing elaborate informational packets with color renderings, aerial maps and answers to opponents' objections. Developers routinely send promotional materials to public officials and community leaders. But these packets are being distributed to more than 4,000 neighbors at a cost of some $50,000.

A state agency has proposed steps that it says will provide enough water to serve the tens of thousands of new residents projected to flood into the Santa Clarita Valley over the next 20 years. Those measures include new underground reservoirs and increased use of recycled water, according to a report by the Castaic Lake Water Agency, which supplies water to four utilities that serve the fast-growing region of north Los Angeles County.

Directors of a state water agency, which blocked plans to redevelop the Newhall business district two years ago, listened Wednesday night to pleas from residents and Santa Clarita city officials to support a pared-down alternative. If the Castaic Lake Water Agency continues to oppose the plan, city officials said, they will discontinue their efforts to revive what was once the commercial heart of the Santa Clarita Valley.

A coalition of environmental groups on Thursday accused the development firm that wants to build the largest planned community in Los Angeles County history of trying to rush a public review of the project. Newhall Land & Farming Co. hopes to begin work in 2000 on Newhall Ranch, a 70,000-resident town that would cover 12,000 acres between Six Flags Magic Mountain and the Ventura County line.

After two days of searching, an endangered toad has been discovered near the Santa Clara River where a developer with plans for 4,300 homes said it had never been seen before. As a result, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has decided to review a permit it had issued for construction in the river channel, officials said. The permit is critical to at least two residential projects along the river and its tributary, San Francisquito Creek.

Citing potential threats to ground water supplies and sensitive wildlife habitats, Ventura County officials and environmentalists urged a judge Thursday to overturn approval of the massive Newhall Ranch development in the Santa Clarita Valley. Opponents charge that the environmental impact report on the 22,000-home suburb--the largest housing development approved in Southern California history--is flawed, and they want the court to require the developer to complete more detailed studies.

It was only a few years ago when it seemed as if the high desert was ready to reclaim the communities of Lancaster and Palmdale, where unemployment and home foreclosures soared in the wake of a crushing recession. But earlier this month, the area celebrated the opening of a gleaming Dillard's department store and the Antelope Valley's first escalator--signs big and small of the region's revival and maturity. "You see buildings going up.

The Santa Clarita and Antelope valleys will continue to wrestle with the consequences of rapid growth, with election-year debates expected to exacerbate controversies over expanding landfills, deteriorating schools and overburdened highways. Congressional primaries, state legislative races and city council elections will provide the local backdrop to the national political contests.

After the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors made clear that it considered plans to build a 2,500-unit housing development in San Francisquito Canyon too large, the developer has reduced the number of units by nearly 30%. The Tesoro del Valle development, which had been opposed by Santa Clarita and local environmental groups, will be reduced to 1,757 units, according to John Evans, co-owner of Evans-Collins Community Builders.
