Thank you for taking the time to sign this petition
Back in 2015 91.04% of the votes from the residents on the EDH CSD Measure E proposal were “NO”, meaning they were AGAINST rezoning of the El Dorado Hills Old Executive Golf Course in an advisory vote.
Just recently, we received a notice from the El Dorado County Planning Commission announcing a hearing to consider the Central El Dorado Hills Specific Plan project to request a General Plan Amendment which will result in rezoning the Old Executive Golf Course for housing.
It seems the will of the people are being ignored and will result in the denigration of quality of life by adding approximately 1566 additional automobiles crowding the intersection of Serrano Parkway and El Dorado Hills Blvd daily, creating more noise and pollution, overcrowding our schools, and developing prime recreational open space in the heart of El Dorado Hills.
Water use is estimated to increase by 70,215,780 gallons per year. (82 gallons per day per capita 783 homes 3 people per home * 365 days)
AECOM Technical Services, Inc. estimates that the project will produce 3,907 metric tons of carbon equivalency per year. (4.99 per service unit * 783)
Residential property in EDH has value in part because of amenities such as schools, parks, and open space. Lots and houses are bought and sold based on this value. To rezone and take away a large piece of open space would have a significant impact. The value of all residential property in the community would be diminished, a loss to all the current owners. In part, the increase in value to the Parker Company achieved through rezoning would come at the expense of other property owners.
I request that:
(1) the Planning Commission NOT Recommend the Central El Dorado Hills Specific Plan as proposed,
(2) the Board of Supervisors NOT approve the Central El Dorado Hills Specific Plan as proposed, regardless of the recommendations of the Planning Commission and
(3) the OLD Golf Course NOT be rezoned for residential development.
I further feel strongly that NO commitments shall be made with respect to any Development Agreement and/or changes to the General Plan without written agreement from representatives of community groups.
This is a travesty that must be stopped!
