County planners are looking to Acton today and Tuesday about the small town’s development.

Some Acton Town Council members are expected to meet today with District 5 representative Norm Hickling to discuss the future of the largely rural community.

“The meeting is on the Acton Town Council input to the Draft Antelope Valley Areawide plan,” said Tony Bell, spokesman for Los Angeles County Mayor Michael D. Antonovich.

Acton Town Council member Ray Billet said he’s looking forward to also discussing the Acton general plan.

“Norm Hickling is apparently going to shed some light on both plans,” he said.

Then, on Tuesday morning, the county Department of Regional Planning is holding a public hearing on Temple Street in Los Angeles on a proposed shopping center for Acton that some Town Council members said they didn’t want.

“We’re opposed to the whole project,” Billet said.

Department planners are expected to recommend the project be denied due to inactivity.

The project called for a zoning change from agriculture to commercial that would allow the construction of more than 64,000 square feet of retail space at the intersection of Soledad Canyon Road and Sierra Highway.

The plan also called for a restaurant on about 6,000 square feet and a gas station.

The planning department reported it received comments from various county departments such as Public Works, the Fire Department and Public Health recommending that the project not be approved.
