Residents Vs. Sierra Club/City of Santa Clarita Open Space Initiative
Both sides have good points (nature is good/over development is bad vs. the program sunsets in 30 years, therefore the city can then sell(out) for development) and some very weak ones too (development causes crime vs. "it's really not a green belt"). This is the second attempt by the City of Santa Clarita to get the Open Space Preservation District passed by voters. If passed, the voters will have an extra tax to pay in a city that traditionally is not about taxing its residents (like no business tax for one).
The area is a Republican stronghold with a growing Democratic population. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.
