About Fanita Ranch
The massive 3,008-unit Fanita Project has "significant unavoidable impacts" to streets, intersections and highways according to the Environmental Impact Report.
A "Statement of Overriding Considerations" by City Council will be required to approve the project. Two such actions were previously defeated by the people and courts. Without your objection, expect the City Council to side with developers again - not you.
Are you willing to pay new taxes to construct an elementary school? The Santee School District states they don't have the money and the “cost is likely to exceed $70 million.” [p.5] The developer says they will provide $9 million, but fails to mention the public costs in their ads.
Are you willing to sit longer in traffic? Over 25,000 vehicle trips per day will be added by Fanita. Significant adverse impacts are unavoidable.
The developer makes grand promises of traffic relief, but fails to build new outlet roads. Their mirage depends upon millions of taxpayer dollars to widen SR-52 in an unlikely scenario that will be overburdened by regional sprawl regardless.
