Dear Shingle Springs residents and supporters,

The Board of Supervisors (BOS) is holding a Special Meeting on Monday, September 30, 2013.  Many of the land use policies that we have been advocating for will be on the agenda for that day.  We need to show up and tell the BOS to take action and deny projects that require a General Plan Amendment, like Tilden Park and San Stino, and to remove the Community Region Line from Shingle Springs so that it is not a target for high density development.

What can you do?

1.    Be at the September 30th meeting to tell the BOS to take action and deny the projects and remove the Community Region Line.  This is an important day.  There is power in numbers and we encourage you to be at the meeting if you can.

       Monday, September 30, 2013, 9:00am
       Board of Supervisors Meeting Room
       330 Fair Lane, Building A
       Placerville, CA 95667

2.    Write emails and make phone calls telling the BOS that you want them to take action on September 30 and start the process to deny the San Stino and Tilden Park projects and to remove the Community Region Line (CRL).  Contact information is below.

3.    If you are available to speak during Open Forum at any Tuesday Board meeting at 9am, go before the BOS and tell them that you want them to start denying the San Stino and Tilden Park projects now and to remove the Shingle Springs Community Region Line.

This has been a busy year for the Shingle Springs community and our vigilance is starting to pay off.  We must stay focused on reminding the BOS that they are to represent the will of their constituents.  That is why we urge you to make those phone calls and send those emails.  As one resident says, "A phone call a day keeps San Stino away!"   And how about, "A phone call a day keeps Tilden Park away!"   And one more, "An email a day takes the CRL away!"  

We are not going to give you a template for this one.  The phone calls and emails need to come from your heart.  If you are tired of taking time off from work to attend meetings, tell the Board.  If you want them to stop wasting our time and to take action, tell the Board.  We are the people, and the Board serves at the will of the people.  Tell them.  Phone them.  It only takes a few minutes a day.  We can do this!
