Comments from back of page:

Keep up the wonderful work you are doing.

I hate the Billboards (Beer) on Mother Lode.  How did that happen?

Re: Mobile home parks, trails, and mixed use:  Depends on where they are located and what the development looks like.

Re: EID sewer: Not sure about this.  If it spawns development, I'm not sure it's a good thing! 

My family and I moved from the Bay Area to get away from the traffic, pollution and crime.  We sure didn't expect to have these things follow us to Shingle Springs!  We are another Bay Area in the making if San Stino and Tilden are built as proposed!

I ran into several older people at this meeting 6/5 (4:00pm) and many do not have email or use Internet.  They found out about these developments (and this meeting!) from road/yard signs.  If funding permits...USPS mailers should be sent in areas where demographics indicate as well as offering "snail mail" sign up sheets for residents that are not tech savvy or do not have Internet access.  Thank you for coordinating these efforts to preserve the rural lifestyle of Shingle Springs!

I was (and am) attracted to Shingle Springs by its rural character.  I no more want equestrian trails or trains than high density development.  One house on 5 acres is rural, period.  S.S. can have wells, septic systems and privacy.  I am not interested in EID expansion or any other trappings of the inner city - sidewalks.

If sewer is expanded EID water should be expanded to accommodate the stress to the well system.

Don't Serrano El Dorado!

Move the line  If Light of the Hills Church couldn't build in the Wild Chaparral area due to environmental impact, how the heck can the Tilden Park project be okay?  If Bosio couldn't build a Little League field in the area, how the heck is it okay to build a hotel and high density housing.  The Little League field would bring in too many cars, so more lights and cars from hotel & high density houses is better.  NO!  Stop this project NOW!

Has anyone asked how this would impact Buckeye District & EDHS District?  Not ready for this!

Mobile home Parks should have enforced CC&Rs to prevent them from becoming a blight.

Expanded sewer service should not be mandated.

Sidewalks in town center only.

Train rides are great except they should not run the entire rail system.

Existing Billboards should have downward facing lighting.
