In 2015, the residents of El Dorado Hills voted on Measure E which was and “Advisory Vote” letting the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors know their opinion of rezoning the 98 acres of property known as the old executive golf course, on the east side of El Dorado Hills Boulevard. The property is currently zoned as “open space recreation“.
The voters were CLEAR on their message. 91.04% of the people that voted said “NO” to rezoning. Only 8.96% wanted change the zoning.
Developers are trying to push to put between 650-1000 single and multi-family housing units (apartments) in that area equal to about 48 acres. (If you are familiar with the Pique apartments only a couple miles away off Iron Point adjacent to Hwy 50, that is what 327 apartments looks like. So, this would be 2-3 times that many!)
The loss of open space, the overcrowding of current schools requiring BUSING to campuses 25 minutes away for students in EDH to Diamond Springs schools, and the added traffic congestion for years to come, just doesn’t make sense.
