Final dates for county scoping this week

El Dorado County has scheduled a series of meetings to collect public comment on the Targeted General Plan Amendment and Zoning Ordinance Update. The environmental scoping meetings were announced following the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors approval of the Notice of Preparation for the Targeted General Plan Amendment and Zoning Ordinance update on May 15.

The Notice of Preparation formally states the county’s intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Report for the Targeted General Plan Amendment and Zoning Ordinance update. The purpose of scoping meetings is to request public feedback on the range of environmental issues that should be analyzed in the Environmental Impact Report. State law requires the scoping period to last 30 days, and a minimum of one daytime meeting for public agencies and citizens to comment on the project scope.

“There is a lot of interest in this project, so we are going above and beyond to collect feedback,” said Assistant Chief Administrative Officer Kim Kerr. “We have extended the comment period to 45 days, created an online comment form, and have scheduled an additional seven evening scoping meetings throughout the county.”

Meetings have already been held at the Union Mine High School Library on May 30, at the El Dorado Hills CSD Pavilion on June 7, at the Greenwood Community Center in Greenwood on June 18, at the Pioneer Park Community Center in Somerset on June 20 and at the Camino School Old Gym in Camino on June 21.

The public is invited to attend the following meetings, which will conclude the month-long scoping:

• On June 25 at the Lake Valley Fire Protection District Station 7,  2211 Keetak Street in South Lake Tahoe from 5:30  to 7 p.m.

• On June 27 at the Cameron Park Community Center, 2502 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

• On June 28 at the El Dorado County Planning Commission,  2850 Fairlane Court in Placerville at  9 a.m.

Scoping comments will be due to the county 45 days after the Notice of Preparation is filed with the state. At the conclusion of the scoping period, the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors will consider the public comments before providing to direction to staff on the Environmental Impact Report. The public will have additional opportunity to comment on the draft Environmental Impact Report.

After it is filed with the state, the Notice of Preparation as well as the online comment form will be available at edcgov.us/LandUseUpdate.
