Town Center Specific Plan

In October 1986, the City of Santee completed a focused effort to plan for the development of property in its geographic core. The Town Center Specific Plan establishes guidelines for creating a people- and transit-oriented hub for commercial, civic and residential uses along the San Diego River.

Subsequent amendments have modified or clarified aspects of the original Specific Plan:
