New Supporting Documents Added to CUP18-0006 El Dorado Disposal Recycling Facility In El Dorado Hills

Nine new supporting documents have been added to the eTRAKiT file for the proposed Conditional Use Permit for El Dorado Disposal to operate a  temporary debris and green waste processing facility.

The property, identified by Assessor’s Parcel Numbers 117-020-08 and 117-020-09, consists of 97 acres, and is located on the end of Wetsel/Oviatt Road  approximately 1.4 miles west of the intersection with Latrobe Road, in the El Dorado Hills area. This will function as a temporary sorting location for the existing Material Recovery Facility (MRF) on Throwita Way in Placeville/Diamond Springs while the existing MRF is reconfigured and soil contamination is corrected over a proposed three year period.

The Throwita Way MRF will continue to be used for serving the public. Materials from the MRF will be transported by El Dorado Disposal vehicles to the Wetsel/Oviatt Road temporary facility for sorting. From there the sorted materials will enter the existing El Dorado Disposal waste streams. There will be no public access at the Wetsel/Oviatt Road temporary facility, and no access from other commercial or municipal waste handlers.

From the October 4, 2018 Proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration and Initial Study_Staff Report Exhibit H (CUP18-0006)
*(Page 33/44) –

Ditches and berms exist on‐site that direct some run‐on stormwater around the site and into an existing stormwater basin. Minor grading and culvert installation would occur to create drainage
swales to route all stormwater run‐on around the facility and stormwater runoff into a proposed stormwater basin. Minor grading would also occur to construct a level pad for the C&D sorting line.
Overall, temporary site construction activity would consist of minor grading to construct a level pad and drainage swales, excavating a stormwater detention basin, construction of a temporary concrete pad, installation of temporary trailer/office, portable toilets, and temporary power, and paving portions of the site. Construction activity is expected to last 20 working days. The temporary site would require approximately 700 cy of soil fill and 3,000 cy of soil cut. The excess soil quantities would be stockpiled on‐site. Construction of the temporary site is expected to take approximately 20 workdays.

Temporary Off‐site Facility—Trip Generation
C&D debris and green/wood waste delivered to the MRF by the public would be transferred to this site. The temporary site would utilize existing access provided by Wetsel‐Oviatt Road. No paving or other improvements to this road are planned. Franchise greenwaste truckloads (route trucks) and separated C&D debris commercial truckloads would be diverted from the MRF and delivered directly to the site. Based on information provided by the Draft Joint Technical Document Containing Facility Plan for C&D Recycling Operations Plan for Green/Wood Waste Processing by Lawrence & Associates (Appendix I), it is anticipated that the temporary site would incur an average of 55 daily two‐way traffic trips. Of these, approximately 49 trips are trips diverted from the existing site to the temporary site. Of these diverted trips, approximately 29 trips would consist of greenwaste and C&D waste truck trips and the remaining 20 trips would consist of employee and visitor trips. The remaining 6 two‐way trips would be new and consist of maintenance and fueling truck trips and water truck trips. The greenwaste and C&D waste truck trips consist of set routes to the MRF facility. As a result of the diversion of the truck trips to the temporary site, some greenwaste and C&D waste truck trip routes would result in a reduction in total vehicle miles traveled (VMT), while other trip routes would result in an increase in total VMT. Based on information provided by the applicant, the net increase of total VMT for the diverted truck trips would result in an additional 1,504 miles per year. The new maintenance and fueling truck trip lengths are based on the Draft Joint Technical Document Containing Facility Plan for C&D Recycling Operations Plan for Green/Wood Waste Processing by Lawrence & Associates (Appendix I). The total trip lengths for employees and visitors are based on the CalEEMod default trip lengths for general industrial projects.

1.5 ‐ Required Discretionary Approvals
The proposed project would require the following discretionary approvals:
 Conditional Use Permit Update (Existing Site)—El Dorado County
 Conditional Use Permit (Temporary Site)—El Dorado County
 Extension of sewer facilities—El Dorado Irrigation District
 Right‐of‐Way Abandonment—El Dorado County Department of Transportation

As previously indicated, the MRF operates under an existing special use permit. Because this project is primarily a renovation of existing operations, the existing special use permit would be revised via an updated Conditional Use Permit. As part of the revision, the total allowable daily tonnage would no longer be split up into waste types, but instead simplified to 700 tpd maximum. This maximum tpd is consistent with the existing permit, but allows for more flexibility in the amount of each waste type received. Actual waste processed at the site is not expected to change as a result of the renovation or update to the Special Use Permit.

EDH APAC Members Offer Vote of Non-Support For DR-R18-0001 Saratoga Retail Phase 2

*****UPDATED AUGUST 18 2018*****

El Dorado Hills Area Planning Advisory Committee voting members have offered a vote of Non-Support for the DR-R18-0001 Saratoga Retail Phase 2 project.

After hearing the project update presentation from the project applicants at the August 8, 2018 EDH APAC meeting, the EDH APAC Executive Board elected to delay a vote regarding support of the project until El Dorado County Staff report and other project findings, released only days before, could be thoroughly and thoughtfully reviewed. After voting members reviewed several hundred pages of documents and exhibits, including the archived documents from the original 2009 DR09-0003, and the 2017 revised DR-09-0003-R, a vote was conducted among members via e-mail.

The final result was a vote of Non-Support 6-0

EDH APAC will be providing a detailed letter to the Clerk of the Planning Commission by Thursday August 16, 2018 detailing EDH APAC member concerns, questions, and conclusions in regards to the vote of non-support. The letter will be added to the project document page HERE

Nine EDH Project Documents Updated

El Dorado County has switched away from the legacy Project Status pages ( here and here ) for tracking project documents (not on the Legistar Calendar, for agency actions), to a new online permit tracking website. The old Project Status search pages would allow a user to select a specific area: El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park, Rescue, etc -or a Supervisor District. It would also allow users to search for specific types of documents:  Design Review, General Plan Amendment, Parcel Map, Rezone – or even ALL documents types


Then it would generate a search result listing of all projects that matched:

The new site eTrackiT has been difficult to navigate, as users cannot just select an area, and type of project files they want to search for, as they previously did on the legacy Project Status pages. A user looking for project information almost has to know one of the following:

  1. Project Name: This has to exactly match the project name that the County enters into the system – the more commonly known public marketing name may not generate a result
  2. Description: Must match what County staff have entered into the tracking system
  3. Developer Name: Must match what Staff have entered into the tracking system. Developers frequently use different legal names, for different projects
  4. Project Number: Users must know the project number to find the project – these are not commonly found by the public. The County has also modified project numbering to accommodate the new system
  5. APN Number: Users must know the Assessor’s parcel number for the project

It is possible to generate a search result list, if the user enters the beginning of a document number – such as PD (planned development), TM (tentative subdivision map) , Z (zoning), etc. But this will generate results from all areas of the County.

EDH APAC has recently added nine new project details to project document pages for El Dorado Hills area projects found in eTRAKiT. These are:

Hawk View TM00-1371-F-Unit1 TM-F18-0004 TM-F18-0005

Serrano Village M2 and M3 Time Extension TM01-1381R TM-E18-0002

El Dorado County Line Multi-Modal Transit Center Study Community Open House – Summary

AIM Consulting has released a summary of the results from public comments generated at the May 17, 2018 Community open house for the El Dorado County Line Multi-Modal Transit Center Study,  sponsored by the El Dorado County Transportation Commission and El Dorado Transit. This study is envisioned to find a replacement for the existing El Dorado Transit Park and Ride facility at White Rock Rd and Post St in Town Center (behind the Big O Tires store).

The current facility is maxed out (167 parking spaces). The concept is to provide a more capable facility, to handle more parking spaces and to provide additional services to draw more commute riders into El Dorado Transit Commuter buses into Sacramento and Folsom, and to get more cars off of HWY50. The focus is for  transportation between El Dorado Hills & Sacramento County. Options are being explored to make the facility more ‘walkable’ and ‘bikeable’ as well as amenities like electric charging stations for hybrid and full electric vehicles, access for school buses from school districts, bike lockers, a rideshare drop off lane (Uber/Lyft) and other potential concepts like shops and a cafe. Potential for parking El Dorado Transit vehicles on site is also desired.

Potential sites for the new facility have been located in and around White Rock Rd and Latrobe Rd – the facility needs to be near HWY50 to minimize the time spent getting on and off the highway.

From the summary:

Next Steps
Over the summer, the project team will develop a plan for the new El Dorado Hills transit center. In the fall, the project team will host a second public workshop to explore proposed transit center options. The project team will present a recommended plan to the public and the EDCTC Board at the end of the year.

DR08-0003-R Saratoga Retail Drive-Thru Modified Project

The project applicants for DR08-0003-R are exploring a revised configuration of their project that was denied by the El Dorado County Planning Commission in February 2018.

The previous project was seeking a design review: adding a third building, but reducing overall square footage of the commercial space. Two buildings were proposed to be fast food drive-thru restaurants, and a third building that would be a non-food retail space.

The revised proposal is to eliminate one of the fast food buildings, and returning to the previously approved two building configuration, again with reduced square footage. One building is proposed to be a fast food drive-thru, the second building will be a non-food retail space. By removing the third building the applicant suggests that they would be able to accommodate RV parking.

The applicant is conducting a public outreach meeting with El Dorado Hills residents on June 26, 2018, at 6:00PM at the Holiday Inn Express in El Dorado Hills Town Center.
