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.

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.

Development Application Submitted For EDH 52 At Silva Valley

An application has been submitted to El Dorado County, and posted on the project status page on October 13, 2017  by RSC Engineering Inc on behalf of EDH 52 GP for a commercial center consisting of a total of 290,000 square feet in the Silva Valley Parkway and Tong Road area. The plan provides details for components involving a hotel, restaurant with drive thrus, a grocery store and a self storage facility. The applicants seek three new entitlements to the project, which include a rezone, tentative parcel map, and conditional use permit.

The project description from the application:

The owner is requesting approval to construct two (2) new commercial centers (collectively, the “Project”) in El Dorado County on APN 122-720-15. The property is located north of Highway 50 and Tong Road, east of Old Silva Valley Parkway, and is bisected by Silva Valley Parkway. The northern portion of the property is approximately 17.07 acres (North Site) and the southern portion is approximately 15.73 acres (South Site), net of the right of way for roads. There is a 7.69-acre area on the North Site for the right of way associated with the future extension of Country Club Drive. There is a 1.3 8-acre open space area west of Old Silva Valley Road that will not be developed.

The County is reviewing the owner’s request as a single application and project for local entitlement and California Environmental Quality Act purposes. However, the owner views the North Site and the South Site as two distinct projects, and each constitutes a separate “integrated development” pursuant to El Dorado County Code Section 130.16.120. Accordingly, the owner will seek separate wetlands permits from the Army Corps of Engineers for each. The maximum building area for the South Site will be approximately 110,000 square feet and may include the following uses: hotel, drive through uses, gas station with car wash, grocery, pharmacy, retail, food uses, outdoor patio, medical office, surgery center, office, technical school, outdoor storage and outdoor sales. The maximum building area for the North Site will be approximately 180,000 square feet and may include self-storage, grocery, and other commercial uses.

The Project requires a Planned Development application because the property is zoned PD-CR. A rezone is proposed to PD-CC to allow more uses primarily seen in a shopping center setting and to allow a self-storage use with the approval of a conditional use permit. In addition, a design review permit will be required for signage and a tentative parcel map is proposed to subdivide the parcels further for purposes of sale, lease or financing of the property.

The maximum building area for the South Site will be approximately 110,000 square feet and may include the following uses: hotel, drive through uses, gas station with car wash, grocery,  pharmacy, retail, food uses, outdoor patio, medical office, surgery center, office, technical school, outdoor storage and outdoor sales. The maximum building area for the North Site will be approximately 180,000 square feet and may include self-storage, grocery, and other community serving commercial uses.

Signage

The owner is also requesting certain deviations from Chapter 130.16 of the County Code for the proposed monument signs, including a reduction in the minimum separation between monument signs, an increase in the maximum number of signs allowed per street frontage, an increase in the maximum allowed area, and an increase in the maximum allowed height. The developer is proposing six (6) 28 foot tenant monument signs allowing advertising from either commercial center. Each monument sign will have one (1) featured tenant panel and six (6) shop tenant panels. The proposed area for each monument sign is 242 square feet. The monument signs -3- will have a stone veneer base, fabricated aluminum panels, and texcote finish to compliment the color scheme of the commercial centers. Tenant names and logos will be routed out with acrylic push-through graphics and vinyl film overlays. Tenant names will be internally illuminated with white LED lights. Colors will comply with tenant specifications.
Building signs will be a part of a separate sign permit and are not proposed at this time.

Site Access

It is anticipated that the Project site will have multiple points of access. A traffic signal is proposed at the main driveway and Silva Valley Parkway to provide access to both the South Site and the North Site. A right in and right out access driveway is proposed on Silva Valley Parkway north of the signalized driveway and at the old Tong Road location to provide access to the North Site. Two full access driveways are proposed on Old Silva Valley Road to provide additional points of access to the South Site.

On Site Improvements

The Project is designed to allow either the North Site or the South Site to develop independent from the other. Mass grading of each site to accommodate future development will occur in the first phase of development, including filling of the permitted wetlands and permitted tree removal. In the event the South Site develops first, utility crossings under Silva Valley Parkway will be  constructed as part of the South Site infrastructure work to serve the North Site. In the event the North Site develops first, interim facilities will be constructed on the North Site.

The second phase will include construction of the parking, landscaping, lighting, utility infrastructure, and driveways designed to support the buildings. Site improvements will be constructed in various phases depending on the extent of development occurring at any given time. Buildings can be started once site improvements are sufficiently completed to allow construction and emergency fire access.

Off Site Improvements

A proposed traffic signal and appurtenant facilities will be located on Silva Valley
Parkway at the center of the Project to provide a connection to both the South Site and the North
Site.
A right in and right out access driveway is proposed on Silva Valley Parkway north of the signalized driveway and at the old Tong Road location to provide access to the North Site. Two full access driveways are proposed on Old Silva Valley Road to provide additional points of access to the South Site. A reservation for 7 .65 acres of future right of way is proposed along the outer boundary of the North Site.

The project seeks to be annexed into the El Dorado Irrigation District for water and sewer service.

APAC Meeting Coverage – Village Life

The El Dorado Hills Village Life has a new article regarding the August 9 2017 APAC meeting, focusing on the El Dorado Hills Apartments at Town Center East.

From the article:

A Stockton-based developer went back to the architectural drawing board to reduce the density of its original plans for the apartment complex proposed on a vacant 4.6-acre lot in the heart of El Dorado Hills Town Center.

Voting members of the Area Planning Advisory Committee, which studies land use projects and gives recommendations to the El Dorado County Planning Commission, voted against the project last Wednesday night and encouraged the Planning Commission to do the same. Planning commissioners received a project presentation last Thursday but did not vote.

The El Dorado County Board of Supervisors will ultimately vote to approve or deny the El Dorado Hills Apartments project, which needs a General Plan amendment since the project calls for 47 dwelling units per acre. The parcel’s current General Plan land use designation allows a maximum of 24. When the project was first proposed in 2014 developers designed it with 56 units per acre. The four-story luxury apartment complex is 15 percent less dense today, with 214 units, ranging from studio to one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments.

Representatives from developer Spanos Corporation spoke at an APAC meeting last Wednesday night inside El Dorado Hills Fire Station 85 ahead of the vote. The project would consist of two, four-story apartment buildings, outdoor recreation areas and an informal open space area. There would also be a five-story parking structure that would house 411 enclosed parking spaces for residents, 22 motorcycle spaces and 54 guest spaces.

Spanos Corp. Division Manager Jeff Morgan said, “We went back to the drawing board. We believe in this project.” He described it as “Old World architecture,” blending in with Town Center’s aesthetics.

Morgan, citing a change in the market since 2014, declined to share expected rents, only saying, “Rents would be competitive.”

Three years ago Spanos Corp. officials said rents would range between $1,600 to $2,200 per month.

El Dorado Hills resident John Davey read a committee report of non-support written by El Dorado Hills Community Council members who extensively studied the project. The first concern was that the project would “nearly double the density under the General Plan,” Davey said. “This would set a precedent.”

Davey said the committee was also concerned about traffic. Several residents in the audience Wednesday night asked questions, uneasy that 54 guest spots wouldn’t be enough and would impact the already limited parking in Town Center.

Morgan said the development company “used historical data” to determine how many guest spaces are needed. “It’s a substantial number,” he added. “This parking ratio works well in our other communities.” When asked, Morgan said Spanos does not have a similar project in the greater Sacramento area but has many across the country.

Davey read the next concern, regarding whether the project would “revitalize” Town Center as a place where people would live, work and play. “We don’t buy the argument,” he said. “There is no job center here. People who live in the complex would most likely be commuting to Sacramento or somewhere else to work.”

Davey continued that the complex “doesn’t address our affordable housing issue” in El Dorado Hills, adding, “This isn’t it. Luxury and affordable are at odds.”

There were also concerns about noise and the potential loss of community events, such as the Santa Run, fireworks, concerts and farmers market.

“How will this benefit the community?” Davey read from the report. A hotel was once planned for the vacant lot, but with this plan, “Transient Occupancy Taxes would continue going to Folsom.”

While Davey, and then APAC members, thanked Spanos representatives for working on reducing density and for coming to the meeting, he ended by saying, “We don’t believe this project is the cure-all for the ails of Town Center.”

Voting members of APAC agreed. At the end of the meeting they voted 7-0 against approval of the project, citing traffic as their “biggest issue.”

in Exhibit 3, the retail buildings would be dispersed along the eastern and western boundaries of the
site with one of the retail buildings located near the center of the site. The retail buildings would be
between 24 and 50 feet in height, with some architectural elements reaching 70 feet.
County of El Dorado Montano De El Dorado Phase II Master Plan

An office building containing approximately 6,000 sf of office space would be in the southernmost
portion of the site with a maximum height of 43 feet.
An approximate 63,000 square foot hotel is proposed on the north-western portion of the project
site at Latrobe Road (south of the existing Pottery World Building). The hotel would include up to 99
guest rooms, two ground level conference rooms (approximately 1,000 square feet each), a lobby
area, and other typical amenities featured in boutique non-full-service hotels (e.g., a small sundry
sales area and minimal bar area). The hotel building would be diagonally positioned along the
western boundary of the project site. To compensate for hillside elevation variations, the hotel
would be trellised where the parking area on the north side of the building is at the second level of
the hotel and the west side of the building hosts the main entrance at the first level with the portecochere
facing the proposed main signalized entrance to the shopping center at Post Street and
Latrobe Road. The hotel would be four-stories and 47-feet in height, with some architectural
elements reaching 70 feet.
A small amphitheater is proposed near the center of the site to host occasional local events for the
El Dorado Hills community and others who are visiting the area. Typical events may include plays,
music, and local celebrations. The amphitheater would be constructed in a lowered grade
configuration to minimize and contain noise levels from travelling into nearby neighborhoods.
Specifically, the stage area would be located approximately 15 feet lower than the top of the
viewing area to the south, and approximately 20 feet lower than the grade level of a retail building
proposed just north (see Exhibit 3). Sound barrier walls would surround the stage at approximately
20 feet below grade on three sides and heavy landscaping would further dampen noise as well as
add ambiance. The seating area facing the stage would be a combination concrete/grass “step
down” area that gradually transitions to the lowered stage area.
