Document Description
In 2013, the City of Santee (“Santee”), the City of San Diego (“San Diego”), Padre Dam Municipal Water District (“Padre Dam”), and Pardee Homes (now Tri Pointe Homes) entered into an Annexation Agreement to set forth the terms and conditions upon which a property consisting of approximately 108.72 acres for the proposed residential development referred to as the Castlerock Project, now known as Weston (“Weston Property”), would be detached from San Diego and annexed into Santee, Padre Dam, and County Service Areas (“CSAs”) 69 and 135. More specifically, on September 16, 2013 and October 1, 2013, the City of San Diego, as the lead agency for the Project under CEQA, took action to certify a Final Environmental Impact Report; adopt Findings of Fact, a Statement of Overriding Considerations, and a Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program; approve the Project; and approve an Annexation Agreement outlining the process to detach the territory from San Diego and annex it into the jurisdictional boundaries of Santee, Padre Dam, CSA 69 and CSA 135. On October 9, 2013, the City of Santee, as a responsible agency under CEQA, approved the Annexation Agreement, made certain responsible agency findings under CEQA, and adopted Resolution No. 088-2013 initiating proceedings pursuant to the Cortese Knox Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000 (Gov. Code, § 56000 et seq.) for the above-mentioned changes of organization. On November 5, 2015, the Local Agency Formation Commission (“LAFCO”) approved “The Castlerock Reorganization (City of Santee) RO13-99”, a reorganization that accomplished the annexations and detachments as well as related sphere of influence amendments involving Santee, San Diego, Padre Dam, and CSAs 69 and 135. The Weston project is now fully developed. During the development process, it was determined that there were discrepancies between the tentative map included in the Annexation Agreement, and the annexation map ultimately adopted by LAFCO. Specifically, the vernal pool lot that was to remain in San Diego was unintentionally annexed into Santee and Padre Dam, and portions of Weston Road and Trailridge Avenue were split between Santee / Padre Dam, and San Diego. A corrective effort is needed to resolve these inadvertent boundary description errors in order to adhere to conservation easements, to ensure that the portions of Weston Road and Trailridge Avenue that are split between jurisdictions will be annexed to and become a part of Santee and Padre Dam’s boundaries and sphere of influence, and that the vernal pools and other portions of the San Diego Multi-Habitat Planning Areas are detached from Santee and Padre Dam, and annexed back into San Diego’s boundaries and sphere of influence. On January 26, 2022, Santee City Council adopted Resolution No. 007-2022 requesting that LAFCO initiate proceedings for the Westin Boundary Cleanup Reorganization. The territory within the boundary correction areas is uninhabited, and no residential development will occur within the boundary correction areas. The proposed reorganization does not involve any new water service, sewer service, fire protection service, or police protection service, and no physical changes would occur to the Weston Property warranting further environmental review. The Weston Boundary Cleanup Reorganization is solely a boundary clarification consistent with the project analyzed in the EIR and approved in 2013. No further CEQA review is required.
