At the heart of all the growth issues is trust. At Google they say, “in God we trust, everyone else bring data.”
And this is where we need to focus: Using data to articulate what rural means, what quality of life means in El Dorado County. The county is using a new Traffic Demand Model.
At issue: Does the model fairly present traffic conditions in the county? This is an important discussion since the TDM will be key in the supervisors’ understanding of the traffic impacts of developments, and serve as an important guide in its decision-making processes, e.g. applying tenets of Measure Y. Smart growth should be data driven. It helps with the trust thing.
