LOS ANGELES-The LA County Board of Supervisors has rescinded its approval of the 21,000-home Newhall Ranch development in the Santa Clarita Valley bordering Ventura County.

Ventura County had sued Los Angeles County to block the development—the biggest in LA’s history–citing the potential adverse impact the project would have on Ventura County’s traffic, water and air. The move by LA supervisors complies with the ruling by a Kern County Superior Court judge that the environmental impact of the project needs additional study.

Many Southland commercial real estate developers have been following the planned project closely, figuring that its more than 50,000 new residents would need places to work, shop and play. LA County must now determine if there is sufficient water for the huge development west of Valencia and pay closer scrutiny on how the project would impact Ventura County.
