I live in El Dorado Hills and participated in a survey for land use in our community in January of this year. I thought it was wonderful that they were getting input from the public as to our priorities for growth in housing, open space and parks, etc.
To my dismay, the El Dorado County planning staff either didn’t read what the majority of the respondents answered or just ignored the results. The majority doesn’t want anymore high-density residential units. Yet, this staff is recommending that a 255 apartment unit — 60 feet high — be built in the middle of the Town Center. The Planning Commission usually takes the staff’s recommendations. And then the Board of Supervisors usually rubber stamps what the Planning Commission does.
Is democracy alive in this county?
