(AP) – Los Angeles County supervisors are considering a massive housing project in fire-prone mountains as the state continues to recover from devastating wildfires.

The supervisors are expected to vote Tuesday on whether to approve the 19,000 home Centennial development at Tejon Ranch.

The vote comes as the state faces a severe housing shortage, but also as recent wildfires draw attention to the danger of building in rural terrain.

The development in the planning stages for two decades calls for homes being built off Interstate 5 in the mountains that separate Los Angeles from the Central Valley to the north.

Developers say they will build homes and neighborhoods to minimize fire hazards.

Opponents cite high fire risks in the area and a recent wildfire that killed at least 85 people in the Paradise area.
