Pre-application review of the El Dorado Hills Community Services District’s proposed Bass Lake Regional Park
Bass Lake Regional Park Pre App Narrative
El Dorado Hills Community Services District (District) requests a Pre-Application review for our Bass Lake Regional Park project. The project encompasses 207.2 acres on four parcels and is a significant regional project. The District’s intent is to develop the westernmost parcel first, followed by full build-out of the other parcels.
The projects incorporates both active and passive recreational opportunities. In the area in and around Bass Lake to the north and east are passive recreation and education elements. The area to the west of Bass Lake, bordering Serrano Parkway and Bass Lake Road are active recreation, a dog park, and parking.
More specific details regarding the park elements are listed below.
The wildlife and natural sounds out at Bass Lake Regional Park are simply amazing. Visitors will have the opportunity to bird watch, and possibly see a golden eagle nesting. Deer and jack rabbits will be out grazing and bugs will be busy working in their natural spaces. EDHCSD is dedicated to preserving it. The flora and fauna found in our backyard is what we want visitors to learn and enjoy at Bass Lake Regional Park.
Bass Lake Regional Park includes a beautiful lake with a natural corridor for wildlife, and we want to make sure that the space is used wisely and that people know about it. El Dorado Hills CSD (EDHCSD) sees Bass Lake Regional Park as a community asset. We want families, kids, schools and anyone in the area or region to come out and experience the park setting on the west side of the lake, the active ballpark, and the dog park. The trail will connect the west side of the park to the east side. The east side of the park will be more passive. EDHCSD envisions picnic areas along the trails along with interpretive signs and nodes for education/classes to learn about the five distinct habitats that have been identified.
The Bass Lake property spans over 200 acres and consists of four parcels. The District has acquired the four parcels that comprise the Bass Lake Regional Park Project. The APNs for these parcels are: 123740001,115400025,115400021,and 115400002.
