Last Updated: 83 days ago
SAN DIEGO - The San Diego City Council is scheduled Monday to consider approving the construction of a housing development project at the San Diego-Santee border, which would eventually be either annexed in part into Santee or remain part of San Diego.
Up to 283 single family homes, 147 multi-family homes, about four acres of public parks and trails and 94 acres of open space would be constructed in the proposed Castlerock Project.
The project is set for a 203-acre site north of Mast Boulevard, between Medina Drive and West Hills Parkway. Upon completion, the development is expected to house more than 1,000 residents, according to city documents.
Under the first of the dual scenarios proposed, the developed portion would be detached from the City of San Diego and annexed into Santee, with most of the open space areas remaining with San Diego as part of Mission Trails Regional Park, according to city staff.
In the second of the options, a 422-housing unit version of the development would remain part of San Diego, officials said.
City staff recommended the council approve both scenarios related to the development, along with permits and an environmental report. Whether the development is annexed or not would then be dependent on the actions of the City of Santee, the San Diego Local Agency Formation Commission and the Padre Dam Municipal Water District.
