Document Description
The applicant has prepared the Newhall Ranch Specific Plan which covers a total 11,963 acres. As directed by the Court, the County will again consider approval of the Specific Plan and WRP, but only with respect to the additional analysis of the issues indicated above. The Specific Plan includes 21,615 dwelling units on 4,835 acres (including an 18-hole golf course, 10 neighborhood parks and seven schools), 630 acres of mixed-uses (including residential, office, and retail commercial uses), 67 acres of commercial uses, 256 acres of business park uses (including light manufacturing, warehousing and distribution), 37 acres of visitor serving uses, 6,138 acres of open area, 3 community parks on 186 acres, and 367 acres of arterial roads and community facilities (including a new 6.9 million gallon per day water reclamation plant, one library and two fire stations). The Specific Plan would build out over approximately 25 to 30 years, with market forces driving the phasing schedule. Development of the Newhall Ranch Specific Plan area would result in an on-site resident population of approximately 60,000 persons.
