LOITERERS TO LOSE DEAD-END SITE.

Byline: Amy Raisin Darvish Staff Writer

STEVENSON RANCH - The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors agreed on Tuesday to temporarily close a dead-end portion of Poe Parkway, a partially obscured site frequented by loitering teenagers.

Formerly the site of a temporary elementary school campus, the section of Poe Parkway - from Defoe Way to the westerly end of Poe - does not provide access to surrounding streets.

The section eventually will be used to extend Poe Parkway to Valencia Boulevard as part of Phase 5 of the Stevenson Ranch development, said Bob Haueter, senior deputy for 5th District Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

``There have been complaints from residents since the school site closed of kids loitering on Friday and Saturday nights,'' Haueter said. ``Residents said they would find empty beer cans around.''

He said officials in the Sheriff's Department and the California Highway Patrol agreed it should be temporarily closed.

The Department of Public Works will oversee the closure of the stretch of road, which Haueter said will likely be paid for by developer Lennar Corp.

Under the California Vehicle Code, local authorities can temporarily close a stretch of highway not designated for through traffic if access contributes to criminal activity.

Haueter said complaints of drag racing in the area also contributed to the decision to temporarily cut off access to the stretch of road.
