Newhall Ranch in Valencia, California

Newhall Ranch is a proposed large scale master-planned community, by Lennar Corporation, a national home builder. The land proposed to be developed is located west of Santa Clarita, California, adjacent to the Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park on currently rugged open space land along the Santa Clara River. The project has been strongly opposed by the City of Santa Clarita, various environmental groups, and local Native American tribes. Several lawsuits have been filed in relation to the project over the years. A lawsuit by three environmental groups was settled in 2004.[1]

Project status

Newhall Ranch has been in planning for nearly 15 years, facing legal actions, environmental concerns, and repeated investor changes.[2] The developers hope to break ground by 2012.[3]

The proposed development would build 20,885 homes, a commercial district, water reclamation plant, seven public schools, three fire stations, a regional park, three community parks,a golf course, and a 15-acre lake. 6,000 acres of permanent open space would be set aside and 50 miles of trails developed .[4] Developers would also convert nearly 20 miles of tributaries and riverbank into storm drains and levees and use 20 million cubic yards of excavated soil to fill in wetlands.[5]
