The March 28 meeting of the El Dorado County Planning Commission ended with most items being continued.

A proposal by Green Valley Nursery and Landscape was continued off calendar in order to address biological issues associated with the project. Don and Julie Devorss had submitted an application to allow a nursery and landscaping business on 9.62 acres located on the southeast corner of Shadowfax Lane and Green Valley Road in El Dorado Hills. The applicants also wanted permission to grow and sell fruits and vegetables.

A proposal by the Rescue Community Center for a zone change from Estate Residential Five-Acre to Recreational Facilities was continued to the commission’s April 25 meeting.

The proposal included a request for a special use permit for a remote control scale race car track on the property. According to planning documents, the race car track has been in use for 17 years with people running electric remote control cars. Once gas fueled cars became popular, the county began receiving noise complaints.

In May 2010, the Code Enforcement Unit issued a Notice to Correct and the illegal use ceased. A subsequent acoustical study recommended the applicant petition the county for a variance to allow gas-powered races. However because of objections voiced by residents at the Planning Commission meeting, the item was continued.

The commission did take action and approve a request by the owners of Naturally Cool Coffee for a drive-thru coffee shop at the intersection of Northside Drive and State Route 49 in Cool. It also reviewed and directed staff to modify a River Management Plan that was developed to manage use of the South Fork of the American River. The modified plan will come back to the commission for action.

The next meeting of the Planning Commission will be on April 25 at 8:30 a.m. in Building C hearing room, 2850 Fairlane Court in Placerville.
