Commissioner Suggests Periodic Review For Proposed General Plan

khts_citymatters_scvlogoAt Tuesday’s Planning Commission meeting, City staff delivered a report on the subject areas of land use and traffic in regards to the draft of One Valley One Vision, which could become Santa Clarita’s new General Plan.  

Following the housing in boom in the ’90s, traffic slowed on several vital roads such as Bouquet Canyon Road and McBean Parkway.

It’s said that weather is a universal topic of conversation, and for Santa Clarita residents the same is true for traffic.  

“You know how long it takes me to make that left in the morning?”  

“I shouldn’t have to wait three minutes at that light.”  

Everyday complaints out here.  

The Planning Commission is in the middle of reviewing One Valley One Vision, the proposed 8,000 page General Plan, which details the city’s development, population growth, air quality, water resources, economic factors and traffic patterns over the next 20 years.  

City staff has chosen to present the bulky document in sections at periodic Planning Commission meetings. On November 16, the commission voted to extend the public comment period from 90 to 150 days, with February 22 serving as the new cutoff date. Tuesday’s meeting dealt with how Santa Clarita’s impending development will affect our roads.  

Four people showed up to speak during public comment, all familiar faces at these meetings.  

Given OVOV’s influence and importance, tremendous responsibility will be placed in the hands of the governmental figures who approve it and the City staff who has to execute it.  

“If you could set some guidelines,” said former City Councilmember TimBen Boydston. “The densification inside the city is something we can control.”  

Commissioner Bill Kennedy went one step further, suggesting review checkpoints for OVOV if it is adopted.  

“This is a long-term plan,” said Kennedy. “This city and the people that live here will either benefit or suffer from it.  

“The question that I pose is ‘Whether or not to build into OVOV some periodic review, perhaps sitting on five or 10 year trigger points.’”  

City Staff will deliver a report on OVOV’s subject areas of water, greenhouse gas and air quality to the Planning Commission on January 18.
