Canyon Country Business Briefs

| Canyon Country Magazine | October 15, 2018

In August, the City issued 51 film permits which contributed to 165 film days, generating an estimated economic impact of $4,435,500.
The following productions were filming in Canyon Country in August 2018.

The project site is on the northeast corner of Soledad Canyon Road and Sierra Highway and is expected to begin construction in the spring of 2019. The City continues to work on completing the construction documents for this project and anticipates the project will go out to bid this fall. The Canyon Country Community Center is tentatively scheduled to open towards the end of 2020. The new center will replace the existing temporary community center located on Flying Tiger Drive, at Sierra Highway.

One of the final structures to be removed, the billboard at the corner of Soledad Canyon Road and Sierra Highway was recently dismantled. As a result, the project site now has a clean slate to begin the grading process. When complete, the new Canyon Country Community Center will hold classes, activities, programs and cultural prospects for youth and adults, as well as special community events and workshops that will provide opportunities for personal and professional development.

Caltrans started its nightly road closures along Sierra Highway, between Friendly Valley Parkway and Newhall Avenue, for re-pavement work on August 20. This work will run through mid-October. All work will be completed in the late evening through the early morning, and will clear out before heavy commuter traffic starts.
