The applicant is moving forward with the Tilden Park project.  The County's November 14, 2018 notice regarding the December 15, 2018 deadline for input on the scope of the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and the November 28, 2018 Open House is available here:  https://edcgov.us/Government/planning/public%20notices/Documents/2018/20181114_Tilden%20Park_NOP.pdf

Due to the inopportune timing of the notice during the holidays, the Shingle Spring Community Alliance (SSCA) asks that you contact the Planning Department and request an extension of the deadline and change in date and venue of the Open House.  The SSCA email is available here:  http://www.shinglespringscommunityalliance.com/news/actionalerttildenparkproject

Please look at these diagrams.  Do you want this type of overcrowded and commercial development as the entryway to our rural and peaceful community?  This piece of property is currently zoned R1A for single-family houses on one-acre parcels.  
A Traffic Impact Study states that this project will add 4,455 daily car trips to the Highway 50 and Ponderosa Road interchange.  Do you want the level of traffic on this interchange increased to unacceptable levels? 
More information can be found on our Documents Page.
