On Tuesday, the L.A. County Board of Supervisors approved a 19,000 home development near the Tejon Pass.
The decision comes after almost 20 years of planning and tensions. Proponents of the project pointed to the need for housing and development, while opponents cited the exacerbation of urban sprawl, the risk of building in a fire prone area and the environmental impacts of the project.
Now that the project has been approved, we look to what’s ahead for the development, the environmental implications and whether it may face legal challenges.
