Planners OK more Valley View homes

A proposal to create 61 residential lots and one open space lot in Valley View Village in El Dorado Hills was recently approved 5-0 by the El Dorado County Planning Commission.

The original Valley View Specific Plan, approved by the Board of Supervisors in 1998, includes 2,840 homes. To date, 1,930 homes have been entitled or built in the plan area.

Two other items on the Feb. 27 agenda were continued, including a request for a Specific Plan Amendment, Development Plan Amendment and a Special Use Permit for a residential senior care facility to be located on the south side of Town Center Boulevard near the intersection of Latrobe Road. That item was continued to the March 27 meeting.

A request to amend the El Dorado Hills Specific Plan and rezone land originally designed for commercial to residential was continued to the commission’s April 24 meeting.

The next meeting of the Planning Commission is 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 13, at 2850 Fairlane Court, Placerville.

DAILYREPUBLIC.com does not necessarily condone the comments here, nor does it review every post. Read our full policy.

  1. These homes will be part of the developers plan for “stack and pack” development. The Valley View homes will be 10 feet apart……yes, each home only has five (5) feet side yard.

    Please tell me where will these people go with only two (2) entrances to this development. If a fire breaks out and a fire truck is coming in one entrance how will all these people get out of one exit? The county didn’t think about that…….

    The county cannot guarantee that the existing homeowners in this county have an adequate water supply. Where is the water coming from for these new homes? The county didn’t think about that……..

    Since the county does not enforce Measure Y (which is supposed to make the developers upgrade the roads to match their development) who is paying for the new roads? The county didn’t think about that………

    Sign the Petitions now circulating in the county and make the BOS and Planning Dept accountable to the above questions and let them know that we want sensible and sustainable growth, not “stack and pack”.
