SANTA CLARITA – Three sites in the Santa Clarita Valley have been tapped for grants of $48,500, part of a $3.2 million grant from the Department of Homeland Security for enhanced protection in case of possible terror attacks. The county Board of Supervisors is slated to accept the grants Tuesday from the federal agency’s 2005 Buffer Zone Protection Program. The funding could be used for planters for use as barricades or other forms of protection approved by federal guidelines. Two of the sites are in Valencia and one in Saugus, though county Office of Emergency Management officials declined to specify their exact locations, citing security concerns. The Santa Clarita Valley is home to the Westfield Valencia Town Center and Six Flags California and is crossed by the California Aqueduct, which carries water from Northern California.
