The Shingle Springs Community Alliance and No San Stino met with Supervisor Ray Nutting on January 23rd, 2013.

The group asked Supervisor Nutting to place a resolution before the Board of Supervisors to consider the removal of the Shingle Springs Community Region line on the agenda before the next Board of Supervisors meeting.

A Community Region line indicates where the County plans to put the highest intensity of development in the county. This is why it is important to remove the Shingle Springs Community Region line to prevent developments like Tilden Park and San Stino from being planned and developed, with the result of losing the rural way of life in Shingle Springs.

Supervisor Nutting stated he would not commit to this without first doing his homework. 

Nutting stated he would first need to meet with county counsel to determine if there are legal ramifications or implications to the county. 

We will be meeting with Supervisor Ron Briggs next and will report on the outcome. 

This is the draft version of the Resolution we asked Nutting to place on the agenda:
  • Remove the Shingle Springs Community Region from the General Plan and create a Shingle Springs Community Plan that will:
    • Embrace and preserve existing Land Use and Zoning designations, which are a vital part of the Shingle Springs lifestyle;
    • Establish the Shingle Springs Community Identity and Vision as a peaceful, country community with ranches and homes on acreage;
    • Create enforceable design guidelines and a sign ordinance to make the vision clear for commercial property owners;
    • Create Shingle Springs Historical Sites to preserve the History of Shingle Springs.
