From Shingle Springs Community Alliance:
- This map shows the intersection of Ponderosa Road and Highway 50. The Board rezoned the 2 north corners of Ponderosa and Highway 50 to an intense commercial zone that is for regional projects, like a Costco (in red with horizontal lines). That will completely destroy our sense of place in Shingle Springs and negatively impact traffic forever.
- Additionally, these commercial parcels are adjacent to Medium Density Residential parcels, which are 1-acre to 5-acres in size (the pink color). A regional project is a very intense use and not compatible with residential homes. Therefore, a request was made to rezone the commercial parcels to a compatible zone, such as Commercial Office or Commercial Light, but that request was ignored.

- Furthermore, there are already small businesses and offices on these commercial parcels. Changing their zoning to Commercial Regional makes the businesses on the ground incompatible with the zoning. The TGPA/ZOU was NOT supposed to create inconsistencies.
- Lastly, the community of Shingle Springs has been very active in the past several years. Why didn’t the Planning staff or Supervisors tell us about the proposed changes and ask for our input???
