Heritage oak meeting set for Wednesday

The Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission is expected to approve the Lyons Canyon Ranch development Wednesday.

The project, which calls for 186 housing units intended for senior citizens to be built off The Old Road near Towsley Canyon, is scheduled to be addressed July 30.

"On the 30th we expect (the commission) to take final action on the project," said Suzi Tae of the planning commission.

"People can provide testimony if they want," she said Monday.

In 2006, Horton's Western Pacific Housing, Inc., submitted a proposal to the county's Regional Planning Commission calling for 93 single-family lots and 93 condos, all intended for seniors, on 234 acres next door to the Ed Davis Park in Towsley Canyon.

In the fall, developers of the community planned for the west side of Santa Clarita Valley are expected to work with a tree specialist to decide what's best for 13 adult heritage oaks trees which are protected by law.

The developer is seeking permission to rip out 162 smaller oak trees, transplant the 13 big oaks and gain permission from the county to encroach on another 52 oaks, six of which are also classified as heritage oaks.

The meeting is scheduled to take place at 9 a.m. Wednesday in room 150 of the Hall of Records at 320 W. Temple Street in Los Angeles.
