Santee wants to hear from local residents regarding the city’s opportunity to buy a half-acre parcel at the 9200 block of Via de Cristina from the state and develop it as a neighborhood pocket park.A public meeting to gather feedback and ideas from residents has been scheduled for 7p.m. on May 2 at Building 8 at the Santee City Hall Complex, 10601 Magnolia Avenue.
“Before we proceed any farther on this project, which is still in the conceptual phase, we want to listen to local residents,” said Community Services Director Bill Maertz.“Input from this meeting will be invaluable to the design of the park,” he said. “We are committed to a process that involves all stakeholders.”
The parcel being considered for the park is surplus property acquired by Caltrans for the construction of State Route 52.The city recently rezoned the property from residential to open space.
Questions about the meeting or the park can be directed to Special Projects Coordinator Terry Rodgers at firstname.lastname@example.org or (619) 258-4100 ext. 127.
