Man this has been in the works for so long. Big props to sticking it out in that location!

santeelakescablepark 10-22-2009 2:48 PM

Thanks Jeff for posting this- you beat me to it! <BR> <BR>We are ALMOST there! I have been so impressed with the showing of support from the members on this site. It is so appreciated! We have one more City Council hearing next Wednesday, Oct. 28th at 7:00. I hope to see some of you there, as we still need the local support to get this approved! <BR> <BR>If you have any questions or need more info, please e-mail me at <a href="mailto:info@santeelakescableboardpark.com">i nfo@santeelakescableboardpark.com</a>. <BR> <BR>Elizabeth

durty_curt 10-22-2009 11:31 PM

if the project gets approved, how long do you think it will be till construction is finished?

bendow 10-23-2009 5:58 AM

I can't believe the battle you guys have put up, and for so long. It's amazing. You really deserve the go ahead for perseverance alone.

santeelakescablepark 10-23-2009 7:37 AM

Thanks Benjamin- It's been 3 1/2 years to date that my company has been involved as the developer, but the water district started working on the concept 7 years ago. I can't wait to see it approved as I have put countless hours into this! <BR> <BR>DC- if we get an approval at this hearing, we hope to be open for business by late Spring 2011.

ottog1979 10-23-2009 8:05 AM

Elizabeth, <BR> <BR>Make sure to get the message over to wakeboardsd.net

wakeboardlasvegas 10-24-2009 10:02 AM

WOW.. even longer to open. that sucks but keep up the fight!!

santeelakescablepark 10-25-2009 9:26 AM

I did just find out we will be doing a Pre-Council Rally pizza party at Round Table Pizza from 5:30 to 6:30 in Santee. It's on the corner of Mast and Magnolia, just down the street from City Hall. We do still need supporters, we do still need an audience, so PLEASE come out and help support the park!! Hope to see you there!

santeelakescablepark 10-28-2009 9:51 AM

Just a reminder about the City Council hearing scheduled for tonight!! I am hoping to see some of you out there! Don't forget to come have some pizza before the hearing at Round Table Pizza from 5:30 to 6:30! See you then!

buzz_grande 10-28-2009 11:02 AM

I am trying to work it out, but it's my son's birthday and relatives are coming over. I am sure between WW and WBSD there will be a great turnout. Someone call me or text me with the results in case I can't make it. Been a long run. Finger's crossed.

santeelakescablepark 10-28-2009 11:10 AM

Buzz- e-mail me your cell # &amp; I will text you after it's over tonight....

Good luck tonight everyone! I made the last one, but can't make this one since I just had my shoulder reconstructed yesterday. <BR> <BR>For people who can't make it down there, show your support by dropping an e-mail to the Santee city council at the following address: <BR> <BR><a href="mailto:Council@ci.santee.ca.us">Council@ci.s antee.ca.us</a> <BR> <BR> <BR>Danny

Congrats, this is great for Cali. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR><a href="http://www3.signonsandiego.com/stories/2009/oct/29/bn29santee03242/" target="_blank">http://www3.signonsandiego.com/stories/2009/oct/29/bn29santee03242/</a> <BR> <BR> <BR>Santee council OKs cable ski park <BR>By Michele Clock <BR>Union-Tribune Staff Writer <BR> <BR>12:24 p.m. October 29, 2009 <BR> <BR>SANTEE � A much-criticized plan to build a cable ski park and restaurant at Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve is a go. <BR> <BR>After listening to nearly 30 public speakers, most of whom were opposed, a divided Santee City Council voted Wednesday night to approve the proposal submitted by Padre Dam Municipal Water District. <BR> <BR>Under the plans, a cable ski park and restaurant with an alcohol license would be built at the preserve's southernmost lake. A cable system would pull waterskiers and wakeboarders around the lake for a price at least $25 an hour. <BR> <BR>The plans have triggered vehement opposition from residents, who Wednesday night listed numerous concerns, including noise and traffic impacts, drunken driving and the idea of allowing development in a tranquil park in the city. <BR> <BR>Mayor Randy Voepel, who had expressed major concerns about the plans at a meeting in August, voted in favor this time, along with Councilmen Brian W. Jones and Hal Ryan, though few significant changes had been made to the plans since then. Councilmen Jack Dale and John Minto voted against the proposal. <BR> <BR>Voepel said he didn't want to restrict Padre Dam's �pursuit of another good activity,� though the impacts of the project were not fully known. <BR> <BR>�I'm willing to roll the dice,� Voepel said. �I'm willing to support Padre Dam on this because Padre Dam has a good track record of being a good neighbor to everyone, and I expect Padre Dam to be a good neighbor.� <BR> <BR>Proponents have argued the facility would fulfill a recreational need in the city and draw users from across Southern California. <BR> <BR>Before the vote, Santee resident Adrian van Ravesteyn, who lives near the preserve, told the council the arguments in favor were �scant.� <BR> <BR>�This beautiful park is right now at risk of being squandered away (for a plan) that ultimately benefits a very few,� he said.

seth 10-29-2009 9:59 AM

Wow that is really awesome that California will be getting a cable!! <BR> <BR>At least $25 an hour seems a little steep! A half day for $100 is scary, when TSR is $36 for the day. It doesnt seem like many people will "frequent" the place if its like that?

ottog1979 10-29-2009 10:09 AM

Very nice! We couldn't make the meeting due to school night, sports schedules, etc. I was thinking there would be a lot less supporters there for the same reason. <BR> <BR>Glad to see the Council make a progressive, exciting decision rather than cater to the same old NYMBY arguments that re-surface again &amp; again in CA. <BR> <BR>Wonder where the $25 "per hour" came in. Hadn't heard that number below. Elizabeth?

santeelakescablepark 10-29-2009 10:10 AM

WoooHooo, it passed! Whew...Thanks for the support and helping us get through this! The WakeWorld support was fantastic at the first meeting and the momentum carried us through last night. Now the real work begins.... <BR> <BR>Seth- the prices have not been set in stone, but it will not be a flat $25 per hour. That was misquoted. We will structure the rates similarly to the existing US cable parks and sell 1-hour, 2-hour, 1/2 day and full day passes.

seth 10-29-2009 10:21 AM

Awesome, cant wait! I know ill be making some trips down there.

priapism 10-29-2009 10:47 AM

Yahoo! Congratulations! Can't wait to go there, and as usual, keep us posted.

buzz_grande 10-29-2009 10:53 AM

Had to miss the meeting, but freekin' exstatic to hear that it passed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <BR> <BR>Thanks a TON to everyone who has supported this over the years by showing support at the meetings, campaign booths, etc. Especially everyone on the development end for the concept and design, and for pushing this through. Thanks also to the council members who realize how much of a good thing this will be for Santee, and SoCal. Man I sound like I just won an Emmy. Feels like it. Just VERY excited to see this pass and get rolling. <BR> <BR>Elizabeth, Let me know when I can start work, and where to show up. Ready TODAY!

santeelakescablepark 10-29-2009 11:02 AM

Lol Buzz! Thanks for your enthusiasm! I'm excited to see this thing get rolling too! I do expect it will be a while before I can put you on the payroll though;)

buzz_grande 10-29-2009 11:13 AM

Thanks Elizabeth. A man's gotta try! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>

tentcitygoon 10-29-2009 11:46 AM

"Proponents have argued the facility would fulfill a recreational need in the city and draw users from across Southern California. " <BR> <BR>Users from Southern California? How about the entire state North and South! This is great news. Thanks for all those who put in the effort and finally got this through!

stephan 10-29-2009 12:07 PM

I'm with you Tony. I'll be making the trek to Santee Lakes a few times a summer once this bad boy is up and running! Can't wait for Cali to get into the game!! Thank you Elizabeth!

wakeviolater 10-29-2009 12:44 PM

HECK YEAH!!! too bad it will be years before its built, but that is AWESOME that CA will have a cable!

ottog1979 10-29-2009 12:52 PM

Not too long. I think they're talking about summer 2011 (18 months).

nsolis220 10-29-2009 1:14 PM

i just got back from florida, and i hit up o dub and mc cormicks. They are very simple places that provide exactly what a rider needs. Water a cable and sliders. oh and a building to charge. I dont know exactly why it would take 18 months to finish. Sounds like the lake is there already all they need is the cable and sliders. <BR> <BR>One thing i saw is they dont sell alcohol or allow it on site. makes sense seems like a greater risk and harder to get the licenses. Seems as if that could have been a sticking issue. <BR> <BR>Couldnt the park go up first and the frill?s later

dakid 10-29-2009 1:16 PM

this truly is awesome news! i can't wait for it to open. i'll definitely try to be there on opening day!

dlwsrider 10-29-2009 1:24 PM

"The plans have triggered vehement opposition from residents, who Wednesday night listed numerous concerns, including noise" <BR> <BR>I love it when people who have no idea what they are talking about draw up complaints. Cable systems are quieter than a running boat by far! <BR> <BR>The others like Drunk Driving and Traffic are just pathetic, haha. <BR> <BR>Glad it Passed, and happy for all the people in the area.

wakeripper 10-29-2009 1:31 PM

So stoked on this and i find it funny that the people that were against it had very little insight as to what a cable is.... My understanding is that they had taken the city council to TSR and after that trip they were sold on the idea....Can't wait to see this finally come together.....I guess i will have to go and search for that free pass

ttrigo 10-29-2009 1:41 PM

"My understanding is that they had taken the city council to TSR" <BR>awesome! I had suggested that a while back. glad it happened. <BR>I can't wait for this to open. just one more excuse for me to move to SD!! <BR> <BR>Elizabeth - let me know when jobs are available!!

dakid 10-29-2009 2:23 PM

randy, damn! that reminds me - i need to look for our passes!!! i hope i didn't lose them. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/sad.gif" border=0>

santeelakescablepark 10-29-2009 2:39 PM

Just to clarify- The Council did not go to TSR. One Council member did visit several years ago when the water district was initially investigating the concept. But, the Council as a whole did not take that trip.

ttrigo 10-29-2009 3:30 PM

haha. probably a good idea clearing that up Elizabeth!

wakeripper 10-29-2009 5:13 PM

I apologize for not checking my sources properly....lol <BR> <BR>Joe i thought that they took down our info...(email addy/phone number) or something like that as i'm sure that they knew 2 years later that we would have lost them....lol Elizabeth can you please verify this...thanks

jdwake1 10-29-2009 7:47 PM

This is sick congrats! I can't wait to visit!!!

santeelakescablepark 10-29-2009 8:35 PM

If I gave you a pass at one point, I will have record of it- somewhere.... hee hee. I kept it all, so if you can't find it, I can look it up. <BR> <BR>E~

redsupralaunch 10-29-2009 10:48 PM

Congrats! from USA Wakeboard.

bendow 10-30-2009 6:35 AM

WHOA! Killer! I'm super happy for you guys! Cali is finally getting a cable! I'm sure you guys will be tearing it up, and I will be sure to make a trip to tear it up with you! <BR> <BR>Elizabeth, are you using a Rixen cable?

buzz_grande 11-01-2009 1:17 PM

Can't stop thinking about it! I'm just sayin'! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>

deltawake 11-01-2009 6:26 PM

Thanks everyone for the congratulation wishes, excitement and support! We are thrilled, to say the least! <BR> <BR>I will update as I know more, but we anticipate construction commencing within 6-8 months. <BR> <BR>E~

buzz_grande 11-03-2009 11:58 AM
