Los Angeles County planning commissioners agreed Wednesday to let the Santa Clarita Valley's largest developer abandon its promise to set aside 447 houses for moderate-income families in Valencia.

But they will be mostly condominiums--472 units with one or two bedrooms--contrasted with the original promise to provide 447 individual houses with two or three bedrooms each in the new Northbridge tract.
