City Moving Forward on Prospect Avenue Improvements

Thursday, April 26, 2012

City engineers and their team of experts are moving forward on the long-planned improvement and beautification of Prospect Avenue.

“Our design team has been in the field recently investigating various options for Prospect Avenue to accommodate a number of improvements that will make this street more attractive, safe and functional,” said principal civil engineer and project manager Carl Schmitz.

The intent is to create a “red carpet” for business expansion along this important commercial corridor along Santee’s southern border with Gillespie Field, the largest of eight general aviation airports operated by the county.

The project calls for revitalizing the appearance of a mile-long section of the street between Magnolia Avenue and Cuyamaca Street. The city intends to invest an estimated $20 million to install new sidewalks, parking, landscaping, lighting, underground the power lines, and improve surface drainage.

Local residents and businesses will have an opportunity to comment on the project a public meeting tentatively scheduled for June.  A set of alternative street alignments will be proposed this fall, followed by an additional public meeting. The city wants to begin construction in the spring of 2014 and complete the project in approximately a year.

Business owners and property owners directly affected by the project can contact the project manager at cshmitz@ci.santee.ca.us or by calling (619) 258-4100 ext. 175.
