Public Hearing for adoption of a Resolution to partially decertify the Final Environmental Impact Report of the General Plan Biological Resources Policy

El Dorado County provides Notice of Public Hearing.

The County of El Dorado Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing in the Supervisors Meeting Room, 330 Fair Lane, Placerville, CA 95667 on October 20, 2020 at 11:00 a.m., to consider: 1) the adoption of a Resolution to partially decertify the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the General Plan Biological Resources Policy Update (Project) only as it
relates to the County’s determination that focusing on preservation of oak woodland habitat in the Highway 50 corridor was not the best course of action and it was not feasible to focus on preserving the oak woodlands within the Highway 50 corridor; 2) directing staff to augment the administrative record as authorized by CEQA, including the missing reports and studies, as set forth in the court’s ruling in Rural Communities United v. County of El Dorado, Superior Court of the County of El Dorado, Case No. PC20170536; and 3) the adoption of a Resolution to recertify the portions of the FEIR that were decertified by the adoption of the prior resolution. The proposed action is in response to the Court’s orders in the writ issued in the above noted litigation. The FEIR for the Project was certified by adoption of Resolution 127-2017 on October 24, 2017. The proposed decertification is a partial decertification; all other parts of the FEIR/EIR will remain in effect.

Draft Development Agreement

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.

The EDHAPAC CUP18-0006 Project Document(s) Page is HERE
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.

County Announced Zoning Ordinance Minor Update

El Dorado County has announced the recently updated the Zoning Ordinance (Title 130 of the County Ordinance Code) with minor amendments. Most of the changes were correcting minor
formatting errors and typos to ensure internal consistency between the Articles contained within the Zoning Ordinance. The amendment also included 11 parcel specific rezones to several properties which were identified as having a documented mapping error.

In addition to formatting corrections, outdoor entertainment uses are now allowed with the approval of a Conditional Use Permit in the Commercial Main Street (CM) zone; personal service uses are allowed either by right or with the granting of a Conditional Use Permit in the Professional Office (CPO) zone; and winery production is allowed with the granting of a Conditional Use Permit in the Commercial Main Street (CM) zone.

The adopted ordinance is posted on the County website at:

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.

The full study summary is here in PDF Format.

El Dorado County Unveils New Interactive Road Work Website

El Dorado County has unveiled a new interactive website that details road work projects.

El Dorado County today launched a new website dedicated specifically to road work projects that have been completed, are currently being done, or are slated to begin this calendar year. Of the 100 projects listed, 58 are maintenance projects, 28 are storm damage projects, and 14 are capital improvement projects. These projects collectively account for nearly $100 million in cost to complete.

“One of the issues of concern to most County residents is the condition of our 1,080 miles of roads. This new website allows residents to easily see where progress has been made, what’s coming up in terms of road repair and what’s currently under construction,” said Department of Transportation Director, Rafael Martinez. “It also provides users with funding information and a timetable for estimated completion of most projects. It will be a constantly evolving site as our employees work to make the roads safe in our County.”

The site contains an interactive overview map of the county with each project marked with different icons indicating whether the project is related to storm damage repair, maintenance or capital improvement and where it is along the continuum of construction.

When a user clicks on an icon, the page moves to screen that provides the project description, estimated cost, estimated construction date (or completion) and the funding source. Many of the projects also include images of construction. Additionally, when a user selects a project, a second map appears on the right side of the screen that displays a zoomed-in location of the larger map highlighting the precise location of the project. Finally, users can also search for projects by name.

Because of the complexity of the mapping features, the functionality of the site works best on Chrome rather than Internet Explorer.

“This website is another tool the County is using to be transparent, keep residents informed and even provide additional information that they may find useful.
