New redistricting maps go to supes Monday

The El Dorado County Board of Supervisors will review three new redistricting maps in a public hearing at 9 a.m. Monday, Aug. 8, in the board chambers, 330 Fair Lane, Placerville.

The maps address the concerns of specific supervisors, and bear their names. The Briggs Rubicon Alternative, Knight/Cameron Park Alternative and Knight/Nutting Alternative can be found on the county redistricting Website, edcgov.us/Government/Redistricting/Redistricting_Maps.aspx.

The maps propose several changes to the “Preview Final Draft Map” presented to the board in July.

Briggs Rubicon
The Briggs Rubicon Alternative Map extends the boundary of District 4 east to the Rubicon River basin.

Knight/Nutting
The Knight/Nutting Alternative Map includes the Briggs Rubicon changes, and leaves District 3 relatively unchanged from the Final Preview Map.

It puts a portion of El Dorado Hills east of Bass Lake Road into District 1, and gives up some areas south of Highway 50, including the “Blackstone” project east of Latrobe Road to District 2.

The otherwise rural District 2 still includes a portion of central Cameron Park, north of Highway 50 and west of Cameron Park Drive.

Knight/Cameron Park
The Knight/Cameron Park Map creates a District 2 that is Cameron Park-centric, including everything east of Bass Lake Road extending east close to Placerville. It also includes Shingle Springs and El Dorado, but not Diamond Springs.

Unlike the Final Preview Map, District 2 does not include Latrobe or the south county ranchlands.

Placerville’s District 3 is expanded to include Latrobe, Mt. Aukum, Fairplay, Grizzly Flat, plus the rural south county ranchlands from the county line east to North South Road.

District 4 still includes a sliver of El Dorado Hills, north of Malcolm Dixon Road.

District 5 includes only minor changes to its western boundary.

After the board approves a map, which could happen as early as Monday, County Surveyor Rich Briner’s staff will create a final map that takes the boundaries down to the parcel level.
