12,000-Acre “New Town”
Psomas is the lead civil engineering firm for Newhall Ranch, a 12,000-acre, 22,000-unit master-planned “new town.” This self-contained new community for 60,000 people in the Santa Clarita Valley will offer 21,600 homes, 1,000 acres of commercial mixed-use, and two business parks.
In addition to civil engineering, Psomas provided land planning and entitlements as well as surveying and mapping services. Entitlement services have included a subdivision map, a general plan amendment, and conditional use permits.
Psomas worked with the County of Los Angeles Fire Department and Department of Public Works to obtain special approvals for the atypical design of the community.
