Playground Closed, Removed at Santee Mini-Park

Saturday, April 16, 2016

The City of Santee today  (April 16) permanently closed a playground  at Santee Mini-Park on Santee School District property that is now for sale.

Volunteers from Eastside Church of Anaheim disassembled the playground structure Saturday on behalf of Kids Around the World. The nonprofit group will refurbish the playground and take it to Mexico, where it will be reinstalled.

 The city has determined it is not cost-effective to salvage the 15-year-old  play structure and rebuild it at another site locally.

The park site at 10455 Mission Gorge Road includes a portable classroom used for recreation classes that will also be removed. The city will continue to maintain the quarter-acre park, which includes a soccer and multipurpose playing field, until the property is sold.

The city will more than offset the loss of the mini-park this year. A new neighborhood park on Via de Cristina near Fanita Drive is scheduled to begin construction this summer, while a new playground will be erected by volunteers on May 21 at Town Center Community Park West.

Pipeline Project To Begin on Carlton Hills Boulevard

Thursday, April 14, 2016

Lane closures, traffic delays and detours on Carlton Hills Boulevard are expected to occur for more than two months beginning April 25 to allow for the installation of a SDG&E natural gas pipeline.
The project, which will occur between Mission Gorge Road and Carlton Oaks Boulevard, is actually the second phase of a pipeline replacement job completed last year on Mission Gorge Road. 

All driveways and streets with access to Carlton Hills Boulevard will remain open during the pipeline installation, which is expected to finish in July.
Motorists can expect to see electronic message boards, traffic control cones, signs and flaggers to assist in the flow of traffic. 

Work occurring north of the San Diego River bridge will take place between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., Monday through Friday. When the project moves south of the bridge, construction will take place Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m  and from 9.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday.
Natural gas service will not be interrupted during the project.

SDG& E has advised residents that they may smell the odor of natural gas and hear a loud, steady noise when workers are releasing natural gas from the pipeline.  Anyone with concerns about the gas odor can contact SDG&E at 1-800-611-7343.
