Scoping meeting to be held March 12 5:30PM at EDH Fire Station 85

Notice of Preparation of Draft Environmental Impact Report and Notice of Public Scoping Meeting for the Generations at Green Valley Project (General Plan Amendment GPA22-0001, Rezone Z22-0001, Tentative Subdivision Map TM220001, Development Agreement DA24-0001) Review Period: February 26, 2024 to March 26, 2024 The County of El Dorado (acting as the Lead Agency) is releasing this Notice of Preparation (NOP) on February 26, 2024, for the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed Generations at Green Valley Project (project) located in unincorporated El Dorado County (County). The NOP initiates the environmental scoping process in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) (Public Resources Code Section 21080.4) and CEQA Guidelines (14 California Code of Regulations (CCR) Section 15082). The purpose of an NOP is to provide sufficient information about the proposed project and its potential environmental effects to allow public agencies, organizations, tribes, and interested members of the public the opportunity to provide a meaningful response related to the scope and content of the EIR, including feasible mitigation measures and project alternatives that should be considered in the EIR (CEQA Guidelines, 14 CCR Section 15082(b)). The proposed project and location are briefly described below. PROVIDING COMMENTS El Dorado County is soliciting written comments from public agencies, organizations, tribes, and individuals regarding the scope and content of the environmental document. Because of time limits mandated by State law, comments should be provided at the earliest possible date, but no later than 5:00 p.m. on March 26, 2024. Please send all comments to: Bianca Dinkler, Senior Planner County of El Dorado Planning Department 2850 Fairlane Court, Building C Placerville, CA 95667 Email:

Agencies that are responsible agencies or trustee agencies will need to use the EIR when considering permits or other approvals for the project. Such agencies should provide the name of a contact person, phone number, and email address in their comment. Comments provided by email should include “Generations at Green Valley Project NOP Comment” in the subject line, and the name and physical address of the commenter in the body of the email.

PROJECT LOCATION The project site is located in an unincorporated area of El Dorado County (Figure 1). Existing land uses in the project area consist of single-family residences and rural residential areas. The project site encompasses approximately 280 acres located on five current parcels, Assessor’s Parcel Numbers (APN) 126-020-001, 126-020-002, 126-020-003, 126-020-004, and 126-150-023. The majority of the site is located south of Green Valley Road, with the exception of northern tip of the site that is north of Green Valley Road (portion of APN 126-150-023). This portion of the project is being removed as part of Boundary Line Adjustment that is being processed under a separate application to the County. The project also includes two proposed access roadway connections to Green Valley Road (C-Drive and A-Drive) that would use existing easements to access Green Valley Road.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION The El Dorado County General Plan land use designations for the site are Low Density Residential (LDR), with approximately 1.4 acres designated Open Space (OS) associated with an existing Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) utility easement. Zoning on the site consists primarily of Residential Estate, Ten-Acre (RE-10), with the SMUD easement zoned as Recreational Facilities, Low Intensity (RF-L). The proposed C-Drive extension area is zoned RE-5, while the proposed A-Drive extension area is zoned RE-10. The Generations at Green Valley Project proposes to amend the General Plan land use designations to High Density Residential (HDR), Low Density Residential (LDR), and Public Facilities (PF). The project would also rezone the site to Residential, Single-unit (R1), Open Space (OS), Recreational Facilities, High Intensity (RF-H), and Residential Estate, Five-Acre (RE-5) (Figure 2). The proposed development area of the project would be within the General Plan designated El Dorado Hills Community Region boundary. The project proposes a Tentative Subdivision Map that would subdivide the project site into 379 residential lots, clubhouse lot, park site lot, thirteen landscape lots, nine (9) open space lots, and three (3) lots for project roadways. Age restrictions would apply to 214 of the residential lots in the project. Proposed residential lot sizes would range from 6,000 square feet up to 5.7 acres. Roadway access to the project would be provided through two (2) main connections with Green Valley Road and three (3) emergency access roads connecting to existing roadways along the project’s boundary. The project also anticipates constructing improvements and adding additional lanes to segments of Green Valley Road. The proposed park site would be 4.0 acres and would be proposed for dedication to the El Dorado Hills Community Services District (CSD). The design of the park site would be determined by the El Dorado Hills CSD, but may include a baseball diamond, tot lot, parking lot, and a restroom. The clubhouse site would be owned and maintained by the homeowners association (HOA) and may include community building, pool, barbeque facilities, bocci courts, and a pickle ball court. The open space would be owned and maintained by the HOA.

Proposed offsite transportation improvements

  • Optimize traffic signal coordination on El Dorado Hills Boulevard/Latrobe Road from White Rock Road to Saratoga Way (North).
  • Modify traffic signal phasing and hardware for the Silva Valley Parkway and Harvard Way intersection to provide a southbound right-turn overlap.

The project would construct improvements to Green Valley Road at the project proposed access points with C-Drive and A-Drive that would provide left- and right-turn pockets to promote safe traffic flow.

Water and utilities

With the exception of proposed onsite wastewater systems for the RE-5 lots and park site, the project would obtain water and wastewater service from El Dorado Irrigation District (EID) and would involve the following offsite water and wastewater improvements

Offsite Water Supply Improvements:

  • Connection to an existing 8-inch water distribution pipeline within Lima Way on the project’s western boundary.
  • Construction of a new water distribution pipeline from the project’s southern boundary to an existing 10-inch pipeline located in Greenview Drive.
  • Construction of a new water distribution pipeline from the project’s eastern boundary along Green Valley Road to an existing 12-inch pipeline west of Pleasant Grove Middle School. Offsite Wastewater Conveyance Improvements:
  • Connection to an existing 8-inch gravity wastewater conveyance pipeline within Lima Way on the project’s western boundary.
  • Upsizing of approximately 1,600 linear feet of existing gravity wastewater pipeline upstream of the Highland Hills Lift Station.
  • Construction of approximately 8,500-linear foot force main from the Highland Hills Lift Station to an existing 15-inch gravity wastewater pipeline that flows to the St. Andrews Lift Station.

Other utility improvements for the project would include the following:

  • Construction of eight (8) onsite detention/water quality basins
  • Improvement of existing electrical cable facilities and addition of new electrical cable along Sangiovese Drive, Appian Way (new trenching anticipated along Appian Way), and Lima Way
  • Improvements to the existing electrical facilities along eastern portion of the project site.

In addition to the General Plan Amendment, Rezone, and Tentative Subdivision Map entitlement requests, the project is also requesting that the El Dorado Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) approve the annexations of the site into the following districts:

  • El Dorado Hills Fire Department (also known at the El Dorado Hills County Water District/Fire Protection District) for fire protection services
  • El Dorado Hills CSD for parks, recreation, and other community services
  • EID for water and wastewater services.
