A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has rejected a lawsuit that had blocked construction of the 830,000-square-foot Valencia Marketplace west of this city. The suit alleged that the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors failed to hold the project to county guidelines set up to ensure that roads, schools, law enforcement and other public services keep up with new construction in high-growth areas.

Despite continuing financial woes, county officials are planning to share sales tax revenues for the first time in history with a retail development, according to documents obtained by The Times. County officials, who wished to remain anonymous, said that tax breaks must be given to Newhall Land & Farming Co. to ensure that the county land on which the $80-million Valencia Marketplace mall is being built is not annexed by the city of Santa Clarita.

Three local citizen groups have slapped the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors with a lawsuit for approving construction of an 830,000-square-foot shopping center west of the city. The Valencia Marketplace, if built, would be the largest shopping center in the Santa Clarita Valley. As developed by the Brentwood-based Riley/Pearlman/Mitchell Co., it would include large discount stores, retail shops and restaurants. Supervisors approved the project July 7.

The City Council may sue Los Angeles County supervisors for approving a mammoth shopping center just outside city limits, fearing it will harm small businesses, adversely impact city services and divert sales tax revenue. Council members voted 5 to 0 Tuesday night for the city attorney and staff members to review the county Board of Supervisors' July 7 approval of the Valencia Marketplace.

City planners say an 860,000-square-foot shopping center proposed west of the Golden State Freeway just outside the city will divert customers from Santa Clarita businesses, add traffic to local roads and needlessly destroy native oak trees. They will recommend Tuesday that the Santa Clarita City Council oppose the Valencia Marketplace project with a resolution aimed at the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission. The commission is scheduled to review the project at a 9 a.m.

Developers of a shopping complex chopped down 105 oak trees this week, angering local environmental groups who have been fighting the plans for the shopping center. "I feel like I lost my friends," said Lynne Plambeck, vice president of the Santa Clarita Valley Organization for Planning the Environment (SCOPE), after seeing the downed trees scattered about the hillside on the west side of the Golden State Freeway, south of McBean Parkway.
