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.

  1. Is there a way to petition to county planning department to put all general plan amendments on hold until the new general plan is completed. I believe a new one is due in 2 years?

    1. Thank you Kim. Would you mind asking your address, just want to make sure you are a resident of EDH. Thank you!

  2. I would really like to help in any way possible I’ve donated what’s currently possible but I do not want to stop there, please let me know how I can join or help!! This is something I truly believe in and am passionate about. My parents divorced while I was young I spent most of my childhood in lotus, moved to eldorado hills, placerville, Cameron park and then back to eldorado hills, my family, my husband’s family and now I are through and through familiar with the area and the recent years of development have been frustrating and disgusting not know what to do or scared there wasn’t enough people feeling this way. Thankful as all hell to know there are and will do anything I can to help. Thank you so so so much.

  3. I know of another HOA that is being sued for not following their own rules/regulations/ CCRs. Is this a trend among HOAs to do this and towards what end?

    Seems this is alot of ‘illegal’ activity.. and the only benefits are lawyers ???

    Yes I am a resident of El Dorado County.

  4. The plan includes lots of open space and park development. Plus, new housing helps lessens the national housing shortage, and provides access to our amazing community. I grew up in El Dorado Hills, and I want more families to grow up here as well. It was, and is, and will continue to be a great place to grow up. They are going to build extremely nice housing, which will blend in seamlessly to the area. I don’t see why our community can’t lend a hand with the housing crisis that’s happening across the country. Maybe if we didn’t NIMBY everything that happened we’d have a more harmonious community. I’m not signing this and neither should you.

    1. Thank you for your thoughts. They are building thousands of homes within five miles of here. If you look across the street in Folsom or off White Rock you will see tons of new homes being built. Are you aware that our local high school is impacted and they are shipping kids to high schools in Shingle Springs now? People who purchased homes in EDH are having to send their kids to schools a half an hour away. Are you aware that for the first time in a long time in 2020, the population of California actually deceased 0.44%. Not only that, but in 2021, the population has declined by 173,000 between July 1, 2020, and July 1, 2021? They don’t need to build all the proposed new housing all within El Dorado Hills. We have had more growth in this county that any other county in El Dorado. We ARE doing more than our share. THe land value is high here, so it won’t be “inexpensive housing or affordable housing” that will be going in.

  5. Trying to sign the petition, but it’s just spinning. Please check your site and get this working again. Let me know when it is and I’ll try to sign again.

  6. Is this group equally now concerned about the Frontier project? I am and am wondering if there is synergy with fighting that project., which I feel would destroy our town. I know the Frontier project is being decided, apparently, in only a month and perhaps we can mobilize to help that parallel cause.
