Library, Massage Parlor and Cross Valley Connector Items Slated For Tuesday Meeting

khts_citymatters_scvlogoTuesday’s City Council meeting will feature a packed agenda consisting of issues related to Santa Clarita’s massage parlors, the bridge on Golden Valley Road, and the creation of the City’s library system.  

Prior to hearing the items, Council will present Board of Equalization member George Runner with a Key to the City for his years as Senator for California’s 17th District, which includes Santa Clarita. Sheriff’s deputies will also be recognized for recovering a stolen truck that belonged to the Senior Center.

In response to the proliferation of local massage parlors, the City Council will weigh an amendment to its municipal code in an attempt to better follow Senate Bill 731, which established state-wide rules for massage businesses, of which there are 37 in the city. The rules require all massage personnel to have a certificate issued by the California Massage Therapy Council, the regulatory body created with the bill’s passing.  

The proposed ordinance applies to all new massage businesses while the existing locations have a year to meet the standards.  

Tuesday should also mark the official start of the Santa Clarita Public Library, as the City Council is expected to approve the second reading for the ordinance.  

However, City staff is recommending Council delay its decision on holding an election for a supplemental library tax.  

Since 1997, Santa Clarita residents have paid a special library tax on top of their regular property taxes to benefit the County-controlled libraries within the city. The tax, now $27.84 per parcel, was approved by 70 percent of local residents. However, following the City’s withdrawal from the County Library system, it’s unclear whether or not the City can levy this same County tax.  

City staff, which had considered imposing a different tax at $19 per parcel pending a special election, is now asking for Council to wait until May to take action.  

City staff is also recommending Council approve naming the Cross Valley Connector’s Golden Valley bridge “Fallen Warrior Memorial Bridge” in honor of local veterans killed in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as enhancing bike lanes in the Valencia Industrial Center.  

In light of Gov. Jerry Brown’s plan to eliminate redevelopment agencies and enterprise zones as part of his proposed state budget, Council will formally state their opposition on Tuesday night. According to the staff report, redevelopment agencies contribute more than $40 billion annually to California’s economy while enterprise zones added 440 new jobs and retained 2,500 more in Santa Clarita since 1997.  

The public will also have the opportunity to speak on the City’s desire to establish a Vehicle Dealer Sales Overlay Zone. If approved, it would prohibit the establishment of new automotive dealers outside the zone’s borders, which contain the properties on Creekside Road, north and south of Auto Center Drive and located at the northwest and southwest corners of the Magic Mountain Parkway/Bouquet Canyon Road intersection. The retail center located at the northeast corner of Valencia Boulevard and Magic Mountain Parkway would be included as well.  

The meeting begins at 6:00 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall.
