Landfill/RS 1-8, AR 1-2/Landfill

Document Description
Rezone from Residential (RS-1-8) to Industrial (IH-2-1- ) to permit the vertical and horizontal expansion of the existing 491-acre facility to allow for increased capacity and extended lifespan of the landfill. Approximately 150 acres of the site have been disturbed to date by prior and on-going landfill operations and excavation, part of approximately 380 acres approved for disturbance under existing permits, 324 acres of which are approved for waste disposal. The project would result in additional 83.8 acres of disturbance, and 28.6 acres of additional waste disposal area. Project improvements would take place on landfill property owned by the project applicant, located north of State Route 52 (SR-52) in the eastern portion of the City of San Diego (City), and north of Mast Boulevard in the City of Santee (Santee). The GPA and CPA would redesignate a net 21 acres of Open Space and 5 acres of Commercial Office to Industrial and/or Sanitary Landfill in the City's General Plan and East Elliot Community Plan, respectively. The project would rezone currently zoned Residential (RS-1-8) (despite having been a landfill since the 1960's) to Industrial (IH-2-1). The PDP/SDP would amend and supersede the existing PDP/SDP and previously granted Conditional Use Permit (CUP) under which the landfill currently operates. Formal vacation of several existing public road rights-of-way and public slope and utility easements crossings the landfill site also would be required. The project also would require relocating existing San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) transmission lines that currently bisect the landfill to a location along the western and northern boundary. The existing utility easement that bisects the landfill would be abandoned once the relocation is complete. Approval of a consolidated parcel map is also part of the project, to ensure that no legal parcels within the landfill are left without legal access. A grant deed from the City would convey the entrance parcel containing the landfill access road to the project applicant pursuant to a three-party agreement entered into with Caltrans as part of the completion of SR-52.
