Santa Clarita... Loved by most of its residents, while maligned by outsiders who may or may not have visited..
219,611 residents live in the City of Santa Clarita. The remaining residents live in the surrounding unincorporated areas. From 2015 to 2016, the population of the Santa Clarita Valley increased by an estimated 1.7 percent compared to 0.8 percent growth rate statewide.
What areas are growing fastest? Actually, all 4 of the 6 cities in the SCV are growing. Saugus is stretching northward while Valencia moves west, adding the Newhall Ranch project. Canyon Country is adding properties to its south east and Newhall is growing downtown. Stevenson Ranch and Castaic are not growing and this is forcing prices there to escalate.
The SCV in Pictures
Santa Clarita transposed over the Los Angeles basin. The city would stretch from the 101-405 intersection to the 2-134 interchange in Glendale, down below Olympic Blvd. in Culver City, and back to the 101-405.....
In Santa Clarita, it takes about 50 minutes to "drive the triangle". To drive the triangle pictured below, you'd be lucky to finish it in 90. Yeah, Santa Clarita!
Santa Clarita swallows up nearly all of San Francisco!
As well as San Diego. Santa Clarita is the 3rd largest city in L.A. County.
