Document Description
On October 12, 2022, at a regularly held public meeting of the City Council, the City of Santee adopted Resolution No. 125-2022, certifying the Final Program Environmental Impact Report (“EIR”) (SCH #2021100263) for the Housing Element Rezone Program Implementation Project (“Project”), adopting Findings of Fact and a Statement of Overriding Considerations under the California Environmental Quality Act, and adopting a Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program. After certifying the Final Program EIR, the City Council then approved the Project by adopting General Plan Amendment GPA2021-2 (Resolution No. 126-2022) and Town Center Specific Plan Amendment TCSPA2021-2 (Resolution No. 127-2022) and approving Rezone R2021-2 and Zoning Ordinance Amendment ZA2021-2 (with an introduction of the corresponding Ordinances). Approval of the Project implements Programs 9 and 10 of the adopted 6th Cycle Housing Element and results adequate housing capacity to accommodate the City’s State-mandated Regional Housing Needs Allocation for the eight-year planning period from April 15, 2021 to April 15, 2029. Approval of the Project results in amendments to the General Plan land use designations of 19 sites throughout the City and in amendments to the Town Center Specific Plan land use designations of eight sites within the City’s Town Center, all in accordance with the City’s adopted 6th Cycle Housing Element. The Project also results in the following: establishment of a new By-Right Housing Chapter of the Santee Municipal Code (SMC Chapter 13.11), setting forth a procedure for processing by-right housing projects and establishing objective design standards for by-right housing; modifications to the Mixed Use Overlay District (SMC Section 13.22.060) to require vertical integration of ground-floor commercial and civic uses on selected multifamily residential sites; and establishment of a density range of 30 to 36 dwelling units per gross acre in the R-30 (Urban Residential) Zoning District.
