AUG. 12 HEARING SET FOR CABLE SKI PARK IN SANTEE; NEIGHBORS FEAR NOISE, TRAFFIC, & IMPACTS ON WILDLIFE
July 15, 2009 (Santee)— A public hearing by the Santee City Council on a conditional use permit for a controversial proposed cable ski park for Santee Lakes is tentatively set for the evening of August 12, Allen Carlisle, director of park and recreation for Padre Dam Water District told East County Magazine. Supporters say the cable ski park would create new recreational opportunities for area residents, as well as revenues for the water district and city. But some residents feel the project would be a detriment, not a benefit, to their community.
“They touted the fact that this is for promotion of a healthy lifestyle. Whose? Certainly not the area residents,” Johney Lively said of a cable ski park proposed for Lake One at Santee Lakes, just 300 feet from his home. “Gone forever will be the lake’s scenic qualities. The peace and tranquility which first brought myself and my neighbors to this area will be nothing but a memory. We see the 35 foot towers as swords thrust into our neighborhood and as the gateway to hell, because our quality of life will be turned into a living hell.”
