12 new sound stages will measure to 555,950 square feet of indoor studios on a 58-acre portion of Disney’s 890-acre Golden Oak Ranch property.  The new construction would occur at the northeast corner of Placerita Canyon Road and Highway 14 which is usually used for studio parking.

The county supervisors are slated to conduct a public hearing at Tuesday’s board meeting and then consider certifying the final environmental impact report; changing general-plan designations from hillside management and floodplain to commercial; granting an oak tree permit to remove 158 trees (including 16 heritage oaks); and approving a parking permit and certain other documents. Disney would plant 1,600 new oak trees, two-thirds more than required to make up for those being removed.

The county Regional Planning Commission signed off in June and issued a statement of overriding considerations, citing increased employment in the media and entertainment industry, permanent protection of natural terrain (the bulk of the 890 acres), the addition of oak trees, public trail access to the Angeles National Forest, and surplus water storage facilities for community fire projection and water supply.

“These, and other project design features beyond those that are required … provide benefits supporting the determination that the benefits of the project outweigh the project’s remaining significant and unavoidable impacts,” a county staff report states.
