Just wondering if the people of El Dorado County know how poorly, or not at all, this county works. The Board of Supervisors are elected by the people; the BOS then appoints its own members to represent it on the Planning Commission.
Now here comes a businessman who had conditions placed on his business by the BOS over three (years) ago. He now doesn’t like the one condition and appeals to the Planning Commission because he doesn’t want to put in a sidewalk. He says it will cost him $45,000, but DOT says it will only cost $18,000. Because of the “poor me” excuse from this businessman, the Planning Commission lets the sidewalk condition be taken off his building requirements. The logic from one of the PC members is this, “If you put in sidewalks the people will walk on them and this will lead to more people in your neighborhood.”
This is how this county works, or does not work. If you were expecting the laws to be enforced on businesses and you will have logical and common sense building, don’t move here … it is beyond crazy. The good-ol-boy network is alive and well over here in El Dorado County.
