SBAOR joined LA BizFed and other business organizations to express support for Centennial at Tejon Ranch, a proposed mixed-use development project in the northern portion of Los Angeles County. This planned community is scheduled for a vote before the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on December 11, 2018.
Centennial proposes to create 19,333 new homes, 10 million square feet of commercial space and add some 23,000 permanent jobs. Among this mix it would add 2,900 units of affordable housing, which is more than what has been produced in Los Angeles County over the last two decades.
Located inside Tejon Ranch and straddling Los Angeles and Kern Counties, the Centennial development sits on the edge of the Tejon Ranch Conservancy, where more than 90% of the entire ranch, or 240,000 acres, has been permanent set aside as open space.
Why is SBAOR addressing an issue located so far away from the South Bay that we serve? SBAOR recognizes that our region’s and state’s housing crisis is far-reaching and should be addressed everywhere. No one city or one region should shoulder alone the responsibility to bring more housing online and meet the overwhelming demand throughout California.
With our support for Centennial at Tejon Ranch, SBAOR is not only calling on the County Superviors to approve this project but also to recognize the importance and urgency of allowing new housing to come forward.
