BACKGROUND

 

The Final Tract Map for Tract No. 73858-01, an exhibit of which is attached hereto, has been reviewed by staff and found to be in substantial conformance with the principles and standards required by the Unified Development Code and State Subdivision Map Act.

This area was subsequently annexed to the City of Santa Clarita (City) on November 15, 2018. This Final Tract Map consists of the subdivision of 49.68 acres into 183 detached single-family residential condominium units. The subject property is located in the Plum Canyon community at the southeast corner of Whites Canyon Road and Skyline Ranch Road.

 

The Final Tract Map was reviewed to the satisfaction of the City Engineer and the City Surveyor and found to be in substantial conformance with the previously approved Tentative Tract Map. The conditions of approval established by the County of Los Angeles were met and adopted by the City, and fees have been and/or will be paid as indicated on the attached Fact Sheet.
