From page A1 | January 16, 2013 |

The El Dorado County Planning Commission took action at its Jan. 10 meeting that moved ahead the Malcolm Dixon Road Estates Subdivision by approving a revision to the approved tentative map that included a phased plan for financing improvements.

The property, which is owned by Chris Labarbera, consists of 40.6 acres, divided into eight lots, located on the north side of the Malcolm Dixon Road in the El Dorado Hills area.

Staff offered the commission three options in deciding how to establish an Area of Benefit and share of cost funding within the area of the project.

After testimony from Labarbera and discussion among themselves, the commission voted to accept the option preferred by the owner. That included formation of a public improvement financing district to cover the cost of off-site public improvements; preparation of a proposed Area of Benefit to finance and reimburse any off-site land acquisitions and public improvements; payment of the equivalent of one lot’s share of cost into a Department of Transportation fund minus the cost of an engineering report to establish the Area of Benefit; and last, the establishment of an Area of Benefit by the county prior to the Phase 2 Final Map recordation.

Along with approval of the process for financing improvements, the commission also accepted the revision to the approved tentative map and negative declaration on the project.

In other actions, the commission approved a special use permit for a cell tower used by Verizon Wireless. Consideration of a special use permit for three gates within the Outingdale Subdivision was continued to a future meeting.

Roger Trout, Development Services Director, reminded the Commission of a joint meeting planned with the Board of Supervisors for Jan. 28.

Rich Stewart was also welcomed as the newest member of the commission. He was appointed by Ron Mikulac, one of two new members on the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors.
