For a policy to receive certification it must be approved by all reviewers on 18 areas spelled out in the Model Investment Policy.

    The City of Santa Clarita will soon begin construction work on the annual 2024 -2025 Road Rehab Program, which uses slurry seal and overlay road treatment to improve City roadways, resurfacing and coating street surfaces, crack sealing, reconstruction and maintenance of roads throughout the City. Construction on the Road Rehab project is anticipated to begin during the week of July 8, 2024, and will continue throughout the summer months.

    Electronic message boards will be installed in affected neighborhoods, along with social media and physical flyers, notifying residents of the anticipated schedule for construction activities. Additionally, residents will receive direct notices regarding the upcoming work to ensure they stay well-informed about the progress and any potential disruptions that may occur. The City will post updates, including construction dates and locations on all social media platforms using #SCRoadRehab. Please be sure to check the City’s pages, @CityOfSantaClarita, or @SantaClarita on X (formerly Twitter), periodically to remain informed of any changes.

    Construction will occur between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday on residential streets, while work on arterial roads will occur at night between 7:00 p.m. and 4:30 a.m. to reduce traffic impacts.

    Residents are asked to be aware of work being done in and around their neighborhoods and plan their routes accordingly. Traffic and “No Parking” signs will be posted to inform motorists of upcoming construction and potential lane closures. Residents are asked to reduce their speed through construction zones.

    The City of Santa Clarita thanks community members in advance for their patience and support of this project. The City’s Road Rehab website, SantaClarita.gov/RoadRehab, features Road Rehab Project locations, frequently asked questions and instructions on what you should do if your street is part of the program this year. All measures will be taken to ensure the project is completed safely and promptly. For questions or concerns, please contact the project hotline at (661) 290-2291.

  • Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, the largest and most diverse amusement park operator in North America, announced Monday the successful completion of the merger of equals between Cedar Fair, L.P. and former Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, effective July 1, 2024. The combined company is operating under the name “Six Flags Entertainment Corporation.”

    Cedar Fair’s units and shares of Former Six Flags’ common stock ceased trading at the close of the New York Stock Exchange on July 1, 2024. Beginning tomorrow, July 2, shares of Six Flags Entertainment Corporation’s common stock will start trading on the NYSE under the ticker symbol “FUN.”

    Under the terms of the merger agreement, Cedar Fair unitholders received one share of common stock in Six Flags Entertainment Corporation for each unit owned, and Former Six Flags shareholders received 0.5800 shares of common stock in Six Flags Entertainment Corporation for each share owned.

    “Today marks a significant milestone for our company, shareholders, guests and associates, unlocking higher value and greater opportunities to deliver engaging entertainment experiences,” said Richard Zimmerman, president and chief executive officer of Six Flags Entertainment Corporation. “Our merger establishes a new Six Flags Entertainment Corporation with a highly diversified footprint and robust operating model, enhancing park offerings and performance though the complementary portfolio of attractive assets and intellectual property from each of Cedar Fair and the former Six Flags. The combination also enhances the financial profile of the company with strong cash flow generation to accelerate investments in our parks to delight our guests, driving increased levels of demand and in-park value and spending.”

    Each park in the combined company’s portfolio will retain their legacy branding with no changes to park names currently being planned or contemplated.

    With an excessive heat warning in effect this week, the City of Santa Clarita strongly urges residents to prioritize heat safety and preparedness during the Fourth of July Parade and the holiday weekend.

    Residents planning to attend the parade are encouraged to stay hydrated by bringing extra water. Wear lightweight, light-colored and loose-fitting clothing, and bring sunscreen to reapply throughout the day. Consider wearing hats and bringing umbrellas to stay out of direct sunlight. Those who are sensitive to heat or have health conditions that increase the risk of heat exhaustion or heat stroke, are encouraged to stay home and watch the parade on the City’s Facebook page. If any attendees begin to feel heat-related illness symptoms, they are encouraged to go to any of the six announcer locations along the parade route, or alert any City staff members or Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s deputies.  

    Another way to beat the heat is by visiting any of our eight City pools on July 4. The Santa Clarita Aquatic Center, Presented by Kaiser Permanente (20850 Centre Pointe Parkway) will be open for Lap Swim from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and Recreational Swim from 12:30 – 4:30 p.m. All other park pools will be open from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. For pool locations and hours, please visit SantaClarita.gov/Aquatics or call (661) 250-3740.

    Additionally, residents can head over to The Cube – Ice and Entertainment Center, Powered by FivePoint Valencia (27745 Smyth Drive) where the facility stays a cool 54 degrees. The facility is open until 4:30 p.m. on July 4, making it the perfect place to enjoy a morning or afternoon on the ice and grab food and drinks from The Grille and The Top Shelf. 

    Remember, ALL fireworks are illegal in the Santa Clarita Valley, including ones labeled safe and sane. All it takes is one spark to start a fire. With high temperatures and elevated fire danger expected throughout the week, residents are encouraged to be prepared and have an emergency supply kit and family action plan ready.
