Fanita Ranch would be a master planned community consisting of up to 2,949 housing units with a school, or 3,008 units without a school, up to 80,000 square feet of commercial uses, parks, open space, and agriculture uses. Development would be clustered, preserving approximately 63 percent of the site (approximately 1,650 acres) as Habitat Preserve. Development would be distributed into three villages. Each village would be defined by its location, unique physical characteristics, and mix of housing types and uses. In addition, the application identifies a Special Use Area located in the southwest corner of the site. The proposed onsite trail system would connect to existing offsite trails in Sycamore Canyon Open Space Preserve, Goodan Ranch Regional Park, Mission Trails Regional Park, and Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve. Improvements to three Santee General Plan Mobility Element streets (Fanita Parkway, Cuyamaca Street, and Magnolia Avenue) would occur to improve and connect the existing segments of these roadways to the Fanita Ranch project site.
The proposed project would include 2,949 units, 80,000 square feet of commercial space that would generate approximately 450 jobs, 78 acres of parks, and a 15-acre k-8 grade school. Improvements to three Santee General Plan Mobility Element streets (Fanita Parkway, Cuyamaca Street, and Magnolia Avenue) would occur to improve and connect the existing segments of these roadways to the Fanita Ranch project site.
