Santee is a suburban city in San Diego County, California, with a population of 53,413 at the 2010 census. Although it is a part of the East County region, Santee is located just 18 miles (29 km) from the Pacific Ocean. The city is connected to the coastline by State Route 52, a six-lane freeway that runs from Interstate 5 in La Jolla to State Route 67 in El Cajon. The city is bisected by the San Diego River, a linear greenbelt that includes parks, trails and more than 1,100 acres (450 ha) of natural riparian habitat. The city's potential for growth and progress was touted in a San Diego Union-Tribune editorial titled "All Roads Lead to Santee".[3]


History[edit]

Original inhabitants were the Kumeyaay Indians, who established a village on the banks of the San Diego River called Sinyeweche.[4] The city is named after Milton Santee, second husband of Jennie Blodgett, whose first husband was George A. Cowles, a ranching pioneer in the San Diego area.[5] [6]

Community profile[edit]

In 2010, the city was populated by 19,272 households, of which 64 percent had incomes greater than $45,000 annually.[citation needed] In 2009, the median household income was $78,872 per year, according to the San Diego Association of Governments. In 2010, Santee had one of the lowest crime rates among cities in San Diego County.[7] Unlike most of the county's coastal cities, Santee still has sizable portions of vacant land suitable for development. It is a growing suburban community that in recent years has added upscale housing, a major corporate business park and expansive shopping centers, along with a destination recreational complex called Sportsplex USA Santee.[8]

Recreational attractions[edit]

Santee is building a new recreation trail here at Walker Reserve
Santee's Mast Park

Sports: Sportsplex USA Santee,[3] a 15 acres (6.1 ha) sports field complex, opened on June 1, 2010. Located within Town Center Community Park, it features three lighted softball fields, four batting cages, two lighted arena soccer fields, spectator seating, parking and a sports-themed restaurant offering food, beer and wine.

Outdoors: In addition to being a popular spot for mountain bikers, the city hosts a popular Southern California rock climbing venue called Santee Boulders.[9] Santee Lakes [10]Regional Park and Campground offers 190 acres (77 ha) for fishing, camping, bird watching and picnicking.

Golf: A local landmark since 1958, the Carlton Oaks Golf Course and resort offers a premier golfing destination.[11] The course was designed by the legendary Pete Dye,who is in the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Music: A 10-week series of free concerts is organized each summer by the city's Community Services Department.[12] The Santee Wine & Bluegrass Festival,[4] a fund-raiser for local park and youth recreation programs, is held each fall at Town Center Community Park.

Transportation[edit]

State Route 52 has recently been extended eastward through this area from its current terminus at State Route 125 to State Route 67 on the city's east side. The city is bisected by four main thoroughfares: Mast Boulevard and Mission Gorge Road traverse east and west, while Magnolia Avenue and Cuyamaca Street cross north and south. Santee also is the eastern terminus of the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) Green Line trolley route, which connects East County to Old Town and downtown San Diego. MTS also provides bus service. Gillespie Field, the oldest and largest of eight commercial aviation airports operated by San Diego County, is located on Santee's southern border with the city of El Cajon. The airport serves as a hub for local businesses.[13]

Public facilities[edit]

The 55 acres (22 ha) Town Center Community Park is located east of Cuyamaca Street along the San Diego River. The center of the park features a 15 acres (6.1 ha) sports field complex operated by Sportsplex USA Santee, and an aquatics center operated by the East County YMCA. The park's first two phases were completed in the fall of 2010. The $23.5 million facility was funded through a combination of redevelopment bonds, developer impact fees and grants.[14]

As of 2011, the city had completed about half of a 4-mile (6.4 km)-long riverfront trail system that will eventually connect with trails in Lakeside and Mission Trails Regional Park.

Located on 15 acres (6.1 ha) in Santee is the Las Colinas Detention Facility,[15] which serves as the primary point of intake for women prisoners in San Diego County. It began as a juvenile facility in 1967 and was converted to an adult women’s institution in 1979.[16]

Geography[edit]

Santee, which is 345 feet (105 m) above sea level, shares the northern part of a valley with the city of El Cajon. The city is bisected by the San Diego River, which flows east to west for approximately 4.2 miles (6.8 km) within the city limits. Hills form a natural barrier on its northern and western sides. Prominently overlooking the western side of Santee is Cowles Mountain. This natural landmark, which is the highest point in the city of San Diego, offers sweeping views of the county and is a popular hiking destination.

Climate[edit]

According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Santee has a semi-arid climate, abbreviated "BSk" on climate maps.[17]
