City approves ‘Habitat for Heroes’ project

To a round of applause from the audience, members of the Santa Clarita City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to move forward with a residential development project for veterans and their families within the city.

The project, known as “Habitat for Heroes,” calls for 87 residential units off Centre Pointe Parkway north of Bowman High School.

Those units would be offered at below-market rates to veterans and their families, according to the project proposal. The project would also include two passive green spaces and one central community play area.

Habitat for Humanity of the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys is applying for the permits to build the complex.

The property proposed for the development is about 23 acres, though only about nine would be taken up by the development, according to David Peterson, an assistant planner with the city.

That land parcel is adjacent to the polluted Whittaker-Bermite brownfield, but the city conducted soil tests to ensure land for the development is not contaminated, Peterson said. All of those tests came back negative for contaminants.

Tuesday’s City Council vote gives preliminary approval to the project. Council members are expected to vote on final approval during their meeting April 9.
