some one please ask about -extending Mast Blvd. -as to the expected start date if any//// This extendion would help a lot of people get the the other side--and keep traffic off the side streets that were not made for heavy traffic. Santee residents were told that when 52 is completed that mast Blvd. would get completed. I hope this project does not end up like our Movie theater project that has been a thron in the side with the County Board of Supervisers who do not care about what happens in Santee.

I second the motion to ask when mast blvd will be completed, and also what is the deal with that phantom movie theater we never got? '

Santee is and has always been a dumping ground for the County of San Diego and the City of San Diego, hence the planned massive expansion of the Las Colinas women's jail right on Mission Gorge in the middle of prime retail and river walk type residential area that could be developed to a much nicer degree than putting a huge jail there which will bring in all kinds of "bad" people related to the inmates in one form or another. The other example is the City of San Diego and the Sycamore Canyon landfill expansion and now the development of the actual Sycamore Canyon area into a residential area right up on the hills across from West Hills High School by the City of San Diego. Our Mayor and city council members need to get in gear and stop this nonsense. Why are they on the city council anyways? Perks, egos, etc?

Our Mayor and Council have been working hard on these issues for years and we have a well run beautiful city. Your insulting remarks are completely unwarranted. If you think it is so easy why don't you run and actually do something other than complain?

What have they accomplished to keep San Diego from moving forward with the above mentioned two projects? Now there is a 3rd project that most people do not want in Santee, it is that housing development that is to be built across the street from West Hills high. Again, what I ask? What about the water ski park at Santee lakes that nobody wanted, but the city council forced it on the people anyway? The only reason that project fell through was the company that was to build it and finace most of it backed out. Show me something real and significant and I will sign their praises. I would love to be the Mayor. I would kick ass and take names in a big kinda way! I would be loved by 75% of the people and hated by the other 25%. Politics is such a sleazy arena though with all of the lieing, backstabbing, corruption, etc, etc. Not the kind of peope I want to suround myself with.

The land fill--and housing project accross from West Hills--are all on San Diego property--first off--its not in Santee--There is only so much the city can do--As far as the ski park--not so sure every one did not want it-- If you don't like the ski park don't go--you can still enjoy the rest of the lakes--the inprovements at the Lakes have been very good--like the new cabins--handicap fishing pier--flower garden for the blind--etc.. Dan O'Brien is right on.

Simon, you are correct that there have been numerous worthwhile improvements at the lakes, however, you must have not attended or knew anyone that did attend any of the city council meetings regarding the water ski park project. The one meeting I attended was at overflow capacity with tv monitors for those that could not fit inside and it went something like 6 hours over the usual time for the average meeting with people that were against the project and STILL the council and Mayor chose to approve the project. I am very well aware that the City of San Diego owns the landfill on the border of Santee and the land that will be the new housing development that will most likely be allowed to be annexed by Santee for adequate Police and Fire protection response times. The landfill will increase in size four times over in the next 30 years. Also it is now allowed to reach a height of nearly 1200 feet. That is close to 400 feet higher than the summit of highway 52 west of Santee. That is what I call a mountain of trash, literaly! Can anyone say cancer cluster?
