Fees paid by homebuilders and commercial property developers are being earmarked for a number of public improvements in the City. Over $34 million in such fees and developer contributions are expected to be available over the next five years. As part of the Parks and City Continues to Recreation Master Plan update, a formal survey of Santee residents, along with several technical Update Parks and studies, will be used to determine how these new revenues should be used. Among the Recreation Master Plan possibilities are: The Community Services Department has been • a gymnasium facilitating a community-driven process to update the • upgraded ballfields Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

Mast Boulevard and Interstate 15, beginning this year. The major residential and commercial builders in East County were consulted prior to enactment of the fees that will make these projects possible. When reminded that some development fees had not been raised since 1992, and notified of the many attractive public improvements that can be funded through these fees, builders in the area actually endorsed the new development fees. As a result, developers will pay their fair share of the costs of improving services and facilities throughout the City for use by Santee residents. Residents will also reap the benefits of a healthy, growing economy and a well- Citizens particiated in three community workshops. balanced community. 2 Frequently Asked Questions About the Old Santee School Site Since Santee School on Mission Gorge Road closed in 2003, many residents have asked what will become of the site. This is really a question for the Santee School District, but the City has continued to assist the District on mutual goals in support of our youth. In addition to the old school buildings, the Santee School site includes a ballfield complex and Chamber of Commerce offices. The school district has listed Santee School Site the property for sale, but has not come to terms with any potential buyers. The property where the old buildings sit is zoned for commercial use, while the ballfield sites are designated for park and public uses. The District could sell the property with the buildings at any time. But before any development on the other portion of property can occur, new facilities must be provided for the sports leagues and the Chamber. One possibility that has been discussed is relocating the ballfields to another surplus property owned by the District — commonly known as the Renzulli site on Prospect Avenue. The Renzulli property has long been considered the most viable location for addressing the City’s overall shortage of park lands, and since 1988 has been part of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The School District would prefer to sell the Renzulli site for multifamily residential development. Whether the City’s goals and the District’s can both be met is the subject of ongoing discussion. Every effort is being made to balance the needs of the schools with those of the broader community. Santee Adopts New Sidewalk Construction Program Two years ago, the City of Santee attained a grant to construct a much needed new sidewalk along Mast Boulevard. The success of that project led the City Council to adopt a program that will ensure the construction of new sidewalks in key areas throughout the City, over the next several years. The first project to construct new sidewalks will be along the east side of Magnolia Avenue that will significantly improve safety for children going to Santana High School and Hillcreek Elementary School. The 400-foot stretch of work is planned for summer and should be completed in time for the new school year. The $164,000 project is the beginning of what the City Council plans to be an on-going sidewalk construction program within the City. Numerous sidewalks have recently been built in conjunction with new development projects. This program will concentrate on already developed portions of the community where sidewalks were not previously installed. The work will be prioritized based on the amount of pedestrian and bicycle traffic in each area and will be funded through Developer Impact Fees as their fair share in improving the quality of life within our community. In 2006, the City expects to construct a new sidewalk on the Cuyamaca Street Bridge over the San Diego River, to serve children who use that path to go to school. Two other sidewalk projects are planned along Graves Avenue and Woodside Avenue, in conjunction with new development projects in those neighborhoods. Mast Boulevard sidewalk and landscape improvements. 3 RiverView Office Park Master Plan Adopted Artist’s rendering of RiverView. The master plan for Town Center’s RiverView Office Park, East County’s first major office campus, has been adopted by the Santee City Council. The 104-acre, 1.5 million square foot office park, to be located along Mission Gorge Road in Town Center, represents four years of collaboration between the City of Santee, the County of San Diego as the property owner, and Ryan Companies, U.S., Inc., as the master developer for the site. The Hartford building represented an early first phase of the new office park. The remainder of the development is anticipated to include a mix of executive, corporate and technological businesses, as well as smaller, local offices. RiverView is expected to generate approximately 4000 — 5000 new jobs for Santee. Build-out of the office park is not expected for seven to ten years. However, potential tenants are already in discussion with the master developer and the City to locate in the new park. The office park will be supported by a new major street which will extend Civic Center Drive Highlight on Santee Business: eastward to Magnolia Avenue. As a result, Civic Center Drive will be renamed RiverView Parkway.

As a result, Caltrans purchased a new site for the City to construct its new maintenance facility and is also contributing $1.4 million of the $4 million project cost. The new building will be a tremendous improvement over the former facility and is expected to be completed by mid-2007. The Public Services Division of the Department of Community Services will operate out of the new facility. The Public Services Division is charged with the responsibility of maintaining City streets, storm drains, curbs and gutters, sidewalks, City parks, landscaping and public buildings. While the new facility is being constructed, the Public Services Division is temporarily operating out of the former City recreation building on Mission Gorge Road. 5 Santee Receives Awards City Manager Keith Till; for Achievement in 5 Years of Service.

Address Curb Painting The City often receives calls regarding individuals or companies involved in painting address numbers on street curbs. Some companies are unlicensed and use strong-arm tactics to collect money from residents for unauthorized or often substandard work. Often, flyers are distributed advertising that a company will be in the neighborhood with no contact information. After the work is performed there will be door-to-door solicitation Discount Tire for payment.
