Stop Tilden Park Project

EDITOR: This project is slotted for the Intersection of Ponderosa Road and Wild Chaparral in Shingle Springs and is currently being reviewed by the El Dorado County Planning Dept. It will include: an 80-room hotel, two-story office building, 20,000 square foot food market, over 200 parking spots and 14 residences on a total of 12 acres. Anyone that has traveled that intersection knows the amount of Ponderosa High School students that use that intersection daily. The development will INCREASE the traffic by 4,455 car trips PER DAY at that intersection … You think traffic is bad now… JUST WAIT! As a resident of this area, I am against this development, not only due to the increase of traffic, but the water run off from the wetlands area, endangered plant area, fire evacuation and development of rural areas in El Dorado County that are stamped “APPROVED” by people that don’t even live there. This is not smart growth.

    Cathy, this location is absolutely horrible for the proposed development. Please visit http://www.change.org/petitions/do-not-increase-traffic-congestion-on-ponderosa-rd-at-hwy-50?te=seia to sign an online petition opposing it.
