Shingle Springs community activist Frank Verdin was incorrectly quoted in a June 9 article about residents gathering on June 5 to demonstrate opposition to several proposed development projects in the Shingle Springs Community Region. The article stated that Verdin attributed current higher water rates to the proposed developments and potential future bond indebtedness for area residents. Verdin’s exact words were: ”We know of Shingle Springs residents whose water rates have recently doubled or tripled. This will need to be repeated again for more growth. We cannot grow ourselves out of debt.”
The article further stated that the proposed Tilden Park project would be on 14 acres. The actual size of the parcel is 12 acres.
