Lantern Crest Ridge II Project Addendum

NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
The original project, approved by the City of Santee City Council on September 9, 2020, included General Plan Amendment (GPA2018-1), Rezone (R2018-1), Conditional Use Permit (P2017-4) and Mitigated Negative Declaration (AEIS2018-2) for a 50-unit senior assisted care facility with structures up to three stories and 59 feet in height. The General Plan Amendment and Rezone changed the land use designation and zoning district of the subject property from the R-1A (Low Density Residential) and HL (Hillside/Limited) to R-14 (Medium High Density Residential). On October 27, 2021, the applicant, M. Grant Real Estate, Inc., submitted a request for a Major Revision to approved Conditional Use Permit (P2017-4) to enlarge a three-story congregate care facility approved for 46 units with 16 additional units (for a total of 62 assisted living units). The revised project would also remove two, single-story duplexes that would have provided four independent senior living units (villas). The proposed revisions would increase the number of residential units from 50 units to 62 units, resulting in a net increase of 12 residential units. The project site is a 2.74-acre vacant parcel of land located at 11000 Sunset Trail in the R-14 Zone (APN 384-142-04). The proposed congregate care facility would be connected to the adjacent Lantern Crest Ridge Phase I building via a new covered pedestrian bridge and would be integrated with the Lantern Crest Senior Living Community. An Addendum to a previously adopted Mitigated Negative Declaration has been prepared for the revised project in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Addendum assesses the potential environmental impacts of the revised project consisting of 62 units as compared to the environmental impacts assessed under the adopted MND for the approved project consisting of 50 units. The analysis provided in the Addendum demonstrates that the revised project would not result in any new additional significant impacts, nor would it substantially increase the severity of previously anticipated significant impacts. All mitigation measures identified as part of the adopted MND remain sufficient in reducing environmental impacts to a less than significant level for the revised project. On February 23, 2022, the City Council approved and adopted the Addendum to the MND, approved Major Revision MJR2021 to the Conditional Use Permit P2017-4 through Resolution No. 021-2022.
