Owners of Canyon View Mobile Home Estates Issued Notice of Violation

City directs property owners to remove solar panels

Today a Notice of Violation was sent from the City’s Community Preservation Division, to the owners of the Canyon View Mobile Home Estates property. The owners installed multiple solar panels on the hillsides, within and outside of the mobile home park, without obtaining required permits and without complying with conditions of approval associated with the conditional use permit for the park. Those conditions of approval require that 50% of the property be maintained as open space. The Notice of Violation directs the property owner to remove the solar panels.

All mobile home parks are generally under the jurisdiction of the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). City staff has been working with HCD and the County of Los Angeles to obtain and review file materials concerning the solar project as well as the conditional use permit, which was originally issued by the County. The review indicates that Canyon View Estates should have sought additional entitlements from the City, and is in violation of the conditional use permit conditions of approval.

While the City supports efforts to move to renewable energy, the City takes seriously its responsibility to enforce conditions of approval designed to protect the quality of life in Santa Clarita, balancing the need for development with the preservation of open space.

  1. Sad, they were only trying to be environmentally sound, and save money.

  2. The homeowners don’t get the benefit. They are selling the electricity elsewhere.

  3. I saw this.. I thought they could have done a better job making them even.
    It’s like they just threw them up there.
