E & G
Don’t Allow El Dorado County
Vote Yes on Measure E
♦ A “Yes” vote will slow the occurrence of stop-and-go traffic gridlock on our roads and Highway 50. It will also force developers to pay for their own road improvements BEFORE project approval♦ Restores the original 1998 Measure Y to its original intent
♦ A “YES” vote helps prevent high-density development projects that create stop and go traffic (LOS F), like Marble Valley, the EDH Golf Course Rezone, and San Stino
♦ A “YES” vote means land use changes which severely impact traffic levels cannot be allowed based on hypothetical road improvements built in the future
♦ A “YES” vote means the Board of Supervisors can no longer use the 4/5ths vote to allow gridlock traffic
Vote Yes on Measure G
♦ A “YES” vote WILL NOT allow approval of new discretionary projects until the agricultural buffers are restored and existing policies that protect our historical, cultural, water and recreational resources are implemented
♦ A “YES” vote requires the County to implement the Water Supply and Demand Management Plan promised in 2004
♦ A “YES” vote mandates that protective policies existing in the voter-approved 2004 General Plan be implemented and no longer ignored
These Measures are to stop the developer influence
over our Board of Supervisors
Parker Development stands to lose over a billion dollars if Measures E and G pass (1,000 houses in the Central El Dorado Hills project and almost 4,000 houses in the Marble Valley project). Parker Development has aligned with and influences several organizations in El Dorado County, including the Farm Bureau and the El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce.
The El Dorado County Farm Bureau supports Parker Development because they have been led to believe that bringing more houses into western El Dorado County will protect their water and keep their rates low.
Listen to Kirk Bone of Parker Development explain his ‘back door deal’ to change Measure Y in 2008
The connections between the El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce, Parker Development, and the Mountain Democrat are very clear.
