LA County Supervisors Approve 'Tejon Ranch' Project

(KNX 1070) -  The LA County Board of Supervisors tackled a host of issues at their Tuesday meeting.

With a vote of four in favor and one against, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has tentatively approved a development of homes by Tejon Ranch in the Antelope Valley.

The project of almost 20,000 homes has been opposed by environmentalists who claim it will damage sensitive habitats and present a fire danger for people living there.

The so-called "Tejon Ranch" project would also include commercial space, schools, police and fire stations and a library.

Woolsey Fire:

The LA County Board of Supervisors could make life a little easier for those displaced by the Woolsey Fire.

Generally, people are not allowed to place an RV or trailer on their property and call it a house, but a motion by Supervisor Sheila Kuehl seeks to change that with an urgency ordinance.

She says they would be able to do so for up to one year but would have to wait until any toxic materials have been hauled away. The board will also consider waiving all County planning application and review fees for those seeking to rebuild.

It's estimated that waiving the fees could cost the County several hundred thousand dollars.
