Expanded Project Notification on 8-13-15 Planning Commission agenda

Post date: Aug 11, 2015 5:17:50 AM

Dear Shingle Springs residents and rural lifestyle supporters,

Our voices were heard and we are making a difference!

On August 13, 2015, the Planning Commission will be holding a hearing on expanding project notification to the public. This process started back in 2013 and the Shingle Springs community's participation and support helped to bring about the suggested changes in the notification process. Click here to read the Staff Report on the proposed increases to project notification: https://eldorado.legistar.com/View.ashx?M=F&ID=3883513&GUID=045DDFEE-CC6A-4E29-95D2-563C8E493355 A few of the suggested changes are: 1.) to increase the area for mailing notices, and 2.) posting signs on parcels to publicize proposed development.

The intent of expanding the project notification is to engage the public earlier in the project. To show your support, please send in an email telling the Planning Commissioners that you support the suggested expansion of public notice on projects to better involve the public in the process. Use this subject line: Planning Commission 8-13-15, Agenda #6, File #14-1210. Here are their email addresses: rich.stewart@edcgov.us, dave.pratt@edcgov.us, tom.heflin@edcgov.us, brian.shinault@edcgov.us, gary.miller@edcgov.us, charlene.tim@edcgov.us

Thank you for staying involved and participating in our community issues. As you can see by the length of time it took to get results on the expanded Public Project Notification, these things take time but we can be successful if we work together and stay involved!
