Porter Ranch

Porter Ranch is a neighborhood in the northwest region of the San Fernando Valley region of the city of Los AngelesCalifornia.

New home construction that was completed in the Porter Ranch area in the 1990s–2000s, including the Renaissance Summit development, was mired in controversy and Los Angeles politics in the late 1980s and early 1990s.[1] Existing residents of the Porter Ranch area feared the increased traffic that would be brought by the planned building of an area commercial complex to service the new homes being built.[2] Developments were also criticized for destroying the natural beauty of the brush and wild areas that inhabited the space before the houses were built.[3]

However, Shapell Homes, a company founded by Nathan Shapell, a major Los Angeles builder,[1][3][4] brought together powerful Los Angeles political figures to support the new home building.[1][3
