Back in 2015, Measure E was an advisory vote which was put on the November 3 ballot to obtain public input on rezoning 100 acres of the former executive golf course in El Dorado Hills from its current land use designation as “open space recreation” to a designation that allows residential housing and commercial development on the property.
The result of the elections was 811 / 8.96% Yes votes versus 8236 / 91.04% No votes which means that 91.04% of the voters opposed rezoning the property to allow residential housing and commercial development.
Since that time in 2015, all has been quiet until October 25, 2019 when the El Dorado County Planning Commission announced a notice of public hearing scheduled for 11/14/2019. This late notice during the holiday season is a familiar tactic of the Developer to catch the community off guard. This is an unfair practice in our view. What this means is that the Developer has all his ducks lined up and sprung this announcement on an unorganized and ill prepared populace. This quickly prepared website is just one line of defense against these despicable tactics by the developer.
The underhanded part of these tactics is that the developer is snubbing the 91% vote of the residents that are against the rezone.
