NOP - Notice of Preperation
Present Land Use
The site is currently mostly undeveloped open space. The zoning is Residential Estate (RE), Business Park (BP), and Specific Plan (SP). The General Plan designation is RE and BP.

Document Description
The proposed project would extend Newhall Ranch Road from its existing terminus at Copper Hill Drive/Rye Canyon Road west to the I-5/SR 126 interchange, a distance of 1.6 miles. The new road would be 160 feet wide with eight traffic lanes (four in each direction), a raised median, and a bike path. Since both ends of the proposed median are "fixed", only two alignment alternatives were studied and are under consideration. The eastern portion of Alternative 1, which is the preferred alternative, would be located slightly south of the Alternative 2 alignment to avoid an existing Heritage Oak Tree.
