Results of Meeting with Supervisor Briggs

Post date: Jan 27, 2013 5:08:27 AM

The Shingle Springs Community Alliance and No San Stino met with Supervisor Briggs January 25, 2013.

The group asked Supervisor Briggs 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 (BOS) 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 Briggs told the group he would not put it on the agenda for next week, but he is going to bring it up for discussion during the Land Use Policy Programmatic Update (General Plan/Zoning Update) workshop the BOS are attending Monday, January 28, 2013. He assured everyone he would ask staff during the workshop the following:

1. How to remove the community region line;

2. What are the impacts from removing the community region line?

This is the draft version of the Resolution we asked Briggs 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.

Both the Shingle Springs Community Alliance and No San Stino will be at the workshop on Monday and will post an update for everyone after the meeting.
