Stiff taxes on developers to pay for schools in the fast-growing Santa Clarita Valley--imposed by voters in June, 1987--have been declared unconstitutional by the state Court of Appeal. In a unanimous decision, three justices of the court's 2nd Appellate District concluded that the five school districts in which the election was held had no constitutional authority to impose such special taxes because they were not authorized to do so by the Legislature.

To the alarm of the state's housing construction industry, voters in the Santa Clarita Valley have overwhelmingly approved ballot measures to allow five area school districts to impose stiff taxes on new homes to pay for school construction. The new taxes of up to $6,300 for each new residential unit approved Tuesday amount to more than three times what the school districts already are collecting under a statewide law that went into effect Jan. 1.
