Dear Shingle Springs residents and rural lifestyle supporters,

We wanted to take a moment and share with you an article that mentions the Shingle Springs Community Alliance as a group that is making a difference in El Dorado County. The article is below for your reference. And remember, the Shingle Springs Community Alliance is you, the community. We'd like to thank each and every one of you for all that you've done this year to keep Shingle Springs rural, such as:

  • Sent emails and made phone calls to the Board of Supervisors and Planning Commissioners

  • Walked a neighborhood to hand out flyers to advertise community meetings

  • Attended Board of Supervisors meetings

  • Attended Community Meetings

  • Completed surveys regarding community issues

  • Submitted comments for the Tilden Park Notice of Preparation (NOP)

  • Submitted comments for the San Stino Notice of Preparation (NOP)

  • Held signs on street corners to advertise meetings

  • Posted signs on your private property to send a clear message that high density development does not belong in Shingle Springs

  • Made donations to cover expenses, such as facility rental for community meetings and photocopying flyers and handouts

Shingle Springs has found its voice and we must stay strong and continue to be vigilant and engaged in our county's government.

Our next step as we move into 2014 is to give a presentation to the Board of Supervisors on the progress we've made toward creating our Shingle Springs Community Plan. At the end of the presentation we will ask the Board to support us to move forward with the plan. We need to pack the room and show the Board that the community supports a Shingle Springs Community Plan to preserve our quality of life.

Please attend:

Board of Supervisors Meeting

Building A, 330 Fair Lane Drive

Thank you and Happy New Year to all.

From the Shingle Springs Community Alliance Core Committee
