The Santa Clarita City Council will hold a special meeting today to discuss and possibly reconsider its recent decision to sue the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to block a 2,555-unit housing tract in the Stevenson Ranch development west of the city. In an unusual move, Mayor Jo Anne Darcy called the meeting so the council can discuss the potential impact of a lawsuit, particularly on plans by the Newhall School District to build schools near the proposed development.

Santa Clarita Mayor Jo Anne Darcy on Thursday defended the City Council's growth policies, saying that, contrary to allegations by City Hall critics, Santa Clarita has allowed little growth since it incorporated in 1987. Darcy, in a wide-ranging "state of the city" address during a public forum at City Hall, said the council had fulfilled pledges made during the incorporation battle three years ago to control the quantity and quality of growth in the city.

The Santa Clarita City Council is calling on cities throughout Los Angeles County to push for legislation that would empower the cities to force the Board of Supervisors to be more responsive to the county's 8.6 million residents. The council's action comes just weeks after Santa Clarita sued the supervisors to overturn their approval of a 2,555-unit housing tract in the Stevenson Ranch development west of the city.

A state report predicts that the proposed city of Sunset Hills would face budget deficits immediately after incorporation, but a key cityhood supporter said the study is still encouraging news to residents hoping to create another new city in the Santa Clarita Valley. The report, released Tuesday, said Sunset Hills, located west of the city of Santa Clarita, would accrue yearly budget deficits ranging from $275,000 to nearly $500,000 during the first four years of cityhood.

The proposed city of Sunset Hills in the Santa Clarita Valley would not be financially sound and should not be incorporated, according to a report released Thursday. The report, prepared by the staff of the Local Agency Formation Commission, also questioned the value of launching a second city in the valley, noting that the city of Santa Clarita is only two years old and is still working out plans for its future.
