The city of Santa Clarita recorded a 264-acre open space parcel Thursday, dedicated by Pardee Homes to the city of Santa Clarita, as part of their Fair Oaks development located in unincorporated Los Angeles County.

The acreage will bring the city's open space land holdings to nearly 3,500 acres of preserved open space that will be preserved in perpetuity.

The 264-acre parcel recorded today is located directly between the Fair Oaks development and the city's Golden Valley open space land and will be considered an addition to the Golden Valley acreage. This brings the total parcel up to 1,184 acres of preserved open space.

The city of Santa Clarita routinely works with developers and Los Angeles County to ensure projects include pen space for the community, to be preserved and never developed.

"Pardee Homes and Los Angeles County should be commended for their contribution to our open space preservation program and the donation of hundreds of acres of land that will be forever preserved for our community," said Santa Clarita Mayor Laurene Weste.

The city of Santa Clarita is the only municipality in the region with a dedicated Open Space Preservation District program that actively seeks to preserve land in and around the city for the purpose of preventing it from ever being developed.

The city is working towards making sure that there is open space surrounding the entire city, as well as to provide a greenbelt buffer and connect the mountain ranges with the Santa Clara River.
