Document Description
The Wal-Mart Expansion Project consists of a proposal to enlarge an existing Wal-Mart retail store in the City of Santee, CA, from its current size of 131,220 s.f. to 180,339 s.f., thereby adding 49,119 s.f. The existing Wal-Mart store sells general consumer merchandise, including household and soft goods, automotive supplies, electronics, pharmaceuticals, limited food items, clothing, kitchenware, hardware, sporting goods, and a variety of other merchandise. The proposed expansion would allow the business to offer a larger selection of groceries to its customers. An application to amend the City of Santee Town Center Specific Plan has also been submitted to clarify that the sale of groceries in conjunction with other retail sales is an allowed use in the Town Center zone. Accompanying the proposed store expansion would be the development of new parking, mostly on a 5.26 acre undeveloped lot situated adjacent to and immediately south of the existing Wal-Mart store site. Development of the undeveloped lot would necessitate the approval of a merger of two parcels as well as abandonment and/or relocation of easements on the site, including water, utilities, and access/open space easements. The merger would eliminate the lot line separating the 14.78-acre lot on which the existing Wal-Mart is located and the 5.26 acre undeveloped parcel needed for the expansion and additional parking. Landscaping and infrastructure improvements would also be constructed.
