About North Los Angeles County: the focus for LA growth and opportunity

Los Angeles is the second largest metropolitan region in the U.S. Given available land for new “green field” development, North Los Angeles County is accommodating demand for mixed use and connected communities.

The City of Santa Clarita, the third largest city in Los Angeles County, has repeatedly been ranked as one of America’s best cities to live in – and one of the safest, featuring strong civic governance; diverse industries in manufacturing, technology and entertainment; highly rated school systems and a family-oriented community life style.
