A story about Casden Properties’ plans for property at Railroad Avenue and 13th Street contained an error. Casden is only proposing residential development on its 95 acres. The rest of the North Newhall Specific Plan area could accommodate 473,000 square-feet of commercial space. (“Newhall plan gains steam,” May 25)

A headline in The Signal should have read, “Obama speaks at Navy graduation.” (“Obama speaks at Marine graduation,” May 24)
