AHMANSON RANCH LIMITATION IMPOSED.
A Superior Court judge said Thursday that developers of the 3,050-home Ahmanson Ranch project should not break ground without notifying him.
Approval last year of a supplemental environmental impact report for the $2 billion development - to be built in southeastern Ventura County - has prompted a lawsuit by Los Angeles County; the cities of Los Angeles, Calabasas and Agoura Hills; as well as environmental groups that include the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
``I think this is an opportunity to get a more thorough review of the impacts of Ahmanson Ranch,'' said Ventura County Supervisor Linda Parks. ``Between the traffic impacts and contamination issues, this development needs further review.''
Tim McGarry, spokesman for the developer, Washington Mutual, could not be reached immediately for comment.
