City Manager Ken Pulskamp is hoping the City Council signs off Tuesday on a sweeping 21-point economic development plan drawn up as a response to the faltering national economy and lower local sales-tax revenue.

Pulskamp said that he is unaware of any other city that might be attempting such an ambitious plan.

If approved by the council, the plan would call for $5,237,003 in city funds. Add that to the $13.5 million the city is receiving as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and some $18.7 million is set for investment in Santa Clarita.
