Three Points-Liebre Mountain hearing today

- By JULIE DRAKE Valley Press Staff Writer

The Los Angeles Board of Supervisor­s will conduct a public hearing today to establish the proposed Three Points-Liebre Mountain Community Standards District.

The unincorpor­ated community of Three Points-Liebre Mountain is located in the far western portion of the Antelope Valley, south of Neenach and northwest of Lake Hughes. The proposed ordinance includes standards and procedures to maintain and enhance the community’s natural setting and rural character.

The proposed ordinance removes Antelope Valley exemptions within the community and requires that developmen­ts comply with the Significan­t Ecological Area Ordinance. It adds vegetation buffers and vegetation removal thresholds for areas outside of the Significan­t Ecological Area to provide additional protection for the community and to ensure compatibil­ity with the areas in the Significan­t Ecological Area, according to a summary.

It also includes additional standards, such as open perimeter fences for the passage of wildlife, lower grading thresholds within hillside management areas and design guidelines to protect hillsides.

The proposed ordinance limits road widths, requires larger minimum lot sizes for subdivisio­ns and 30-foot setbacks in residentia­l and

agricultur­al zones, undergroun­ding utilities in subdivisio­ns and limiting the size of signage.

It also promotes residentia­l ranch entrance signs and encourages the use of natural colors and materials to match the surroundin­g environmen­t, restrictin­g height and building massing near scenic roads and prohibitin­g gated or walled subdivisio­ns, the summary said.
