Document Description
On September 23, 2020, at a regularly held public meeting of the City Council, the City of Santee adopted Resolution No. 093-2020 certifying the Revised Environmental Impact Report ("EIR") for the Fanita Ranch Project ("Project"), adopting Findings of Fact and a Statement of Overriding Considerations under the California Environmental Quality Act, adopting a Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program, and approving the Project. The Project has been revised from a prior application approved by the City in 2007. The earlier approvals and the original EIR for those approvals were subject to litigation from 2008-2012 and ultimately vacated by the City. The EIR adopted on September 23, 2020 is considered a Revised EIR in that it fully evaluates the Project as a modification of the prior project while also addressing any applicable portions of the earlier environmental analysis for the prior project approved in 2007 that were found inadequate by the trial and appellate courts. See NOD for full document description.
