Shingle Springs Community Alliance Supporters,

Supervisor Briggs did bring up a discussion regarding moving Community Region lines during the January 29 Board Meeting. However the discussion was inconclusive and left many questions. Here is a link to the video and it is #20 http://eldorado.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=2&clip_id=157.   I sent off the email below to Supervisor Briggs a few minutes ago and will let you know our next steps.

Dear Supervisor Briggs,

Thank you for bringing up the discussion regarding moving Community Region lines during the January 29 Board meeting. I respectfully refrained from making comment because you gave clear direction that public comment was to be regarding the Cameron Park design guidelines only, and I did not have comment on that. The discussion did answer some questions, however it created others. I believe this is a good start to some very necessary dialogue within the County. 

We are not asking to make any Land Use changes in Shingle Springs. In fact, we are asking to preserve the Land Use designations that we currently have by removing the Shingle Springs Community Region line. Therefore, no impacts would be made to the environment and there is no clear need for an Environmental Impact Report (EIR).

The Community Region line makes Shingle Springs a target for high intensity development in El Dorado County. Residents chose to live in Shingle Springs to get away from urban congestion. With the knowledge that was gained from Tuesday's meeting, please advise us in how to best proceed in removing the Community Region line from Shingle Springs.

Thank you,

Lori Parlin
