by Mayor Laurene Weste
Santa Clarita is Los Angeles County’s third largest city and is considered to be one of the most well-run cities in the State. Often recognized for being an amazing place to live, Santa Clarita was recently selected again as one of the “Most Business Friendly Cities” in L.A. County.
Assuring that our residents enjoy a high quality of life is something we take very seriously. Funding top-notch law enforcement, investing in our infrastructure, protecting our beautiful open space, adding state-of-the-art amenities such as parks, bike paths, community centers, libraries, transit and trails all contribute to this wonderful place we love to call home.
As your Mayor, I want you to know that each of our city councilmembers works hard to meet these goals. Over the last few months, my work has centered on several high level issues facing Santa Clarita, our region and our State. I have met with legislators regarding support of Assembly Bill 1471, which authorizes a $7.5 billion water bond package to be placed before the voters at the state’s General Election on November 4. If passed, the bill will enable portions of the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District and our City to be eligible for water bond funding. This will assist in improving water quality and sustainability.
I am working with Congressman McKeon in support of his proposed legislation that will memorialize the St. Francis Dam disaster, the largest American civil engineering disaster of the 20th Century. I am also working with the Congressman’s office in support of a proposed Wilderness bill that will specifically preserve wilderness areas inclusive of Fish Canyon, Salt Creek, Elderberry Canyon, Red Mountain and Tule. These areas are the jewel of the Castaic region and have been recommended by the US Forest Service to be preserved in their most natural state, at the highest level designation.
I am honored to be your Mayor and work hard every day to assure that you enjoy living in the best city in California. Should you wish to share your thoughts about our City with me, please email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
