At the October 27, 2011 meeting with the Planning Commission, the proposed Tilden Park Project was continued (not approved nor denied) to December 8, and then continued again to February 9, 2012, where it was taken off calendar so that an EIR may be prepared.

At the 2-9-12 Planning Commission meeting the developer and County Staff came to the conclusion that an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) must be completed for this proposed project.  The impacts are significant and an EIR will force the County to acknowledge the negative effects of this project on our community.

An agreement between El Dorado County and Real Returns, LLC in an amount not to exceed $41,266 was approved on 9-25-12 to fund an EIR.  The Notice of Preparation was published 12-18-12 and information about making comments regarding the NOP can be found by clicking here.  Public comments were due by 5:00pm on Friday, January 18, 2013.  Thank you to everyone who submitted comments.  We'll keep you posted on what is next
