Document Description
The MetroWalk Specific Plan Project would include development of up to 498 residential units in four planning areas, on an approximately 20.4-acre site in the City of Santa Clarita (City) in northern Los Angeles County. The Project Site is generally located north and west of the Metrolink train tracks and east of Lost Canyon Road in the Canyon Country community of the City. The proposed residential units would comprise a mix of housing types, including market-rate apartments and townhomes, age-qualified apartments, and affordable senior apartments. A multi-use path would link the Project Site with the future Metrolink Vista Canyon Station to the east and the Vista Canyon Specific Plan Project to the north while connecting various private amenities throughout the Project Site, including park nodes, open space, a central clubhouse, and a playground. The multi-use path would terminate at a plaza at the far eastern area of the Project Site, which would provide a publicly accessible outdoor amenity adjacent to the future Metrolink station and a connection to commercial uses, trails, and other amenities within the Vista Canyon Specific Plan area. Given the Project's density and proximity to transit, it is considered a Transit Priority Project (TPP), eligible for CEQA streamlining pursuant to California Public Resources Code (PRC) Section 21155.
