To be called the Crossroads Market and Deli, a 2,432-square-foot building and an outdoor picnic area is planned for the west side of Latrobe Road, just north of the intersection with South Shingle Springs Road.

The developer of the property is the Paula Reece Revocable Trust.

The proposed project required a General Plan Amendment, a design review and a rezone. In addition a special use permit was requested so a farmers market, arts and crafts programs and other special events could be held on the property 15 times a year.

The development had previously attracted a few concerns from local residents and the Latrobe School District who worried about traffic impacts and the design aesthetics of the site.

Voting to approve the project were Chair Dave Pratt and directors Walter Mathews and Rich Stewart. Directors Tom Heflin and Brian Shinault were not at the meeting. The project now goes to the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors for final approval.

The commissioners also approved the rezoning of a 20-acre site in Cameron Hills near Cambridge Road and Knollwood Drive. The site has been approved for a total of 41 residential lots and five open space lots. To date no development has taken place on the property.

A rezone was required after minor changes to a previous development plan created a conflict between the modified map layout and the underlying zoning of the approved map. The rezone now goes to the Board of Supervisors for approval.

In another matter, the commission put off until later this year to hold a hearing to potentially revoke or change the conditions of a special use permit issued to a local company.

Issued to Sundance RV, Boat and Mini-Storage in 1999, the permit allowed an outdoor lumber storage area in conjunction with a building supply store. In 2000, the permit was modified to allow a cutting saw to do a limited amount of cutting for customers of the lumber yard.

However the activities at the lumber yard drew multiple complaints from nearby resident Bert Keeler who said noise from the high-speed planer and other equipment made living in his home “intolerable.”

Planning staff reported they made an on-site inspection last year and found the owner was not abiding by provisions of the special use permit. In addition they noted an excessive amount of noise from the equipment and building activities.

As a result, the staff recommended a hearing be conducted, noting the conditions of the permit had been violated.

With the owner of the property not prepared for a hearing, the commission voted to continue the item to Dec. 12.
