The rugged Fanita hillside open spaces are under assault by out-of-town developers who would leave existing residents saddled with traffic gridlock from a 3,000-unit project generating over 25,000 vehicle trips/day.
No new road outlets will be constructed. Over 8,000 new residents jammed onto existing roads jeopardize emergency evacuation and risk the loss of Santee’s family-friendly community atmosphere.
This is our time in our town! Let’s work together to STOP Fanita Sprawl and protect our quality of life!
Contact the City Council to insist that they wait to consider Fanita subdivision approval until after the people vote on the General Plan Protection Initiative.
Councilmember Koval is on record in two publications stating the people will have the opportunity to vote on the General Plan Protection Initiative prior to City Council consideration of the Fanita project.
The steep slopes of the Fanita mountains shield the interior of the majestic Fanita Ranch from Santee’s urban development. Fanita’s natural urban growth boundary provides endangered species habitat and a golden scenic backdrop of visual relief for the city. The northern interior of the ranch is a walk back in time with a unique serenity now unknown elsewhere in coastal San Diego County.
Fanita brims full of wildlife and is considered a biological core habitat by the Multiple Species Conservation Plan (MSCP). Fanita Ranch is ground zero in the battle between potential developers and Santee residents determined to avoid the devastating impacts of a massive sprawl subdivision.
