Movie Ranch Overlay Zone
The Movie Ranch Overlay Zone assigns certain areas within the City of Santa Clarita where location filming and production related facilities, including soundstages, are permitted by right.
The Movie Ranch Overlay Zone was created as a way to support existing entertainment industry businesses, attract new production and film companies to Santa Clarita, and encourage location filming and full service motion picture and television filming at movie ranch properties.
Productions filming at Movie Ranch Overlay Zone designated properties benefit from reduced cost permits and expedited permit processing time.
There are currently six movie ranches located within the City’s Movie Ranch Overlay Zone: Blue Cloud Movie Ranch, Rancho Deluxe, Rancho Maria, Rene’s 50’s Town, Sable Movie Ranch, and Veluzat Motion Picture Ranch.
It is expected that additional properties will be annexed into the City’s Movie Ranch Overlay Zone in the future.
