Greetings Shingle Springs residents and supporters,
Our response to Roger Trout's White Paper on General Plan Amendments Related to Community Region Boundary Lines is attached for your reference.  Please take time to read it over to prepare for the June 27th Special Board Meeting Workshop. 
We encourage you to attend the workshop on Thursday, June 27, if you are available, to voice your support during public comment for removing the Community Region Line (CRL) from Shingle Springs.  The meeting starts at 9am and the Community Region Line discussion is #4 on the agenda.  There is not a specific time for agenda item #4.  The agenda is attached for your reference.  Please note that agenda items #1-3 also pertain to Land Use in the county and you may want to attend.
WARNING:   We are not asking you to take time off from work because this workshop is burdened with additional agenda items and there may not be time for adequate presentation and discussion of agenda item #4.
Remember, we need that Community Region Line removed so that Shingle Springs is not a target for high density development.  The Board has the authority to direct Planning Services to remove the CRL.  People choose to live in Shingle Springs because of the medium and low density land uses, and that lifestyle should be preserved for future generations as stated in the 1977 Shingle Springs Area Plan.  Explain to the Board that many people did not know what a CRL was during the election of the 2004 General Plan, or share your story about why you chose to live in Shingle Springs.
If you cannot attend the Workshop on June 27th, please email and phone the Board of Supervisors to voice your concerns.
