A $5,000 grant to help promote Cameron Park was reported at the Oct. 16 board meeting of the Cameron Park Community Services District.

Approved by the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors as part of a package of cultural and community development grants, the money will go towards creating a “Visit Cameron Park Web Tool” Community Map project.

A joint effort of CPCSD, the Shingle Springs Cameron Park Chamber of Commerce, and the Cameron Park Visitors Center, General Manager Mary Cahill said the Web tool will help people identify points of interest in Cameron Park.

The board was also informed that the Parks and Recreation Master Plan is being finalized and is expected to be completed by November or December.

A recommendation of who should be hired as general counsel for the district is expected in November as well.

Cahill reported she continues to meet with developers whose proposed development projects would impact the district’s facilities. Doing so provides developers advance notice of the district’s bond obligation, assessment districts, impact fees, and covenants, conditions & restrictions, she said.

Pending or proposed development projects include Cameron Woods No. 9, Bell Woods, Cameron Hills, Porter/Campobello, and Marble Valley/Lime Rock.

Cahill reported three recent events put on by the district were very successful including the Renaissance Faire, Rubstock and the Pumpkin Festival. The Pumpkin Festival alone attracted 800 people she said.

Upcoming events include the Capital Pops Concert on Nov.16, the Christmas Craft Faire on November 23, and the Santa Run and Breakfast on December 7.

The board also received audit findings covering the last fiscal year. According to the auditors, in 2012 the district had total revenues of $5.9 million and total expenses of $6.01 million. Net assets decreased by $192,000 but the general fund balance increased $217,000. At end of fiscal year, the total fund balance was $5.9 million for the district which included $3.1 million of assigned funds, $2.7 million in unassigned funds, and a reserve of $65,000. The auditors concluded that the economic condition of the district reflects financial stability with potential for organizational growth.

    Even with Mr. Doom & Gloom's rants, sounds like the district is doing ok. The only "hemorrhaging" is the untruths coming out of the malcontents mouths! Good job to the people doing the real heavy lifting. Despite all the misinformation being presented, the numbers do not lie.

    Brenda next time you are at a CSD meeting identify yourself. I want to know if you really attend the meetings or if you are Scott McNeil. It seems funny that for someone who is never in attendance at the CSD meetings is such an expert on what the state of Cameron Parks finances are. As to malcontents nice try but Cahill wasting my money is never going to go unchallenged. Let me ask Brenda do you get the agenda and packets for the CSD meetings? If so do you know how to read a financial report. If you say yes to either of these then you know the CSD is set to lose about $100,000. Now Cahill thinks she's going to get the money from Cal Fire. She is wrong. Public safety comes before hold hula classes.
