I saw Diamond Springs resident Laurie Brown’s letter in the Sacramento Bee about new development approvals forging ahead in spite of the drought. Thank you Laurie.
Look how many of those developments are in El Dorado Hills, yet EDH residents seem blissfully unaware of them. I think it is because they are reading the Bee rather than local coverage in the Mountain Democrat.
Many of our county decision makers seem to think we want these developments, or they wouldn’t be encouraging proposals such as the apartments in Town Center. This is not a small, revitalizing, project; it’s a game changer, and it’s not the only one.
People need to wake up, countywide, but especially those who live or shop in the “impact-zone” of EDH. For them it is a triple-whammy: water, traffic and quality of life.
