EDH APAC Submits letter seeking an in-person Scoping Meeting
El Dorado Area Planning Advisory Committee Officers believe that a project of this prominence, and generating interest among hundreds of El Dorado Hills residents merits an in-person public meeting. EDH APAC has heard from many community members with numerous questions, concerns, and comments about the project. The August 11, 2021 EDH APAC meeting held at El Dorado Hills Fire Department’s Station 85 Meeting room drew over 60 attendees in person to hear from the project applicants a presentation, and for the opportunity to ask questions. The meeting was also live streamed to over 68 virtual attendees.
EDH APAC Officers believe that a virtual scoping meeting diminishes the opportunity for the project applicants to meet with residents, and to directly hear, and answer questions that may result in a project that better benefits the El Dorado Hills Community, as well as the applicants.
