[email protected] (661) 257-5255 SANTA CLARITA – The City Council took little time Tuesday night in tentatively approving a 499-home development in Plum Canyon that has prompted opposing camps of Canyon Country neighbors to battle over whose street will get the traffic from the new neighborhood. Council members closed the public hearing after one session on Tuesday, saying they grasped the issue that spawned dueling petitions – and unanimously approved Brookfield Homes’ $100 million project. “The (project) has been reviewed adequately,” said Councilman Bob Kellar. Area residents may have input on the means chosen to “calm” the traffic on Ermine Street, which could see a rise in daily vehicle trips from about 80 a day to 2,000 a day. In November, the city Planning Commission shunned city traffic engineers’ recommendations to extend Ermine Street in favor of its residents’ pleas to keep the dead-end street as is.
