SAN STINO IS A SMART GROWTH DEVELOPMENT WITH THESE POLICIES:
“Compact, livable urban neighborhoods attract more people and business. Creating such neighborhoods is a critical element of reducing urban sprawl and protecting the climate. Such a tactic includes adopting redevelopment strategies and zoning policies that channel housing and job growth into urban centers and neighborhood business districts, to create compact, walkable, and bike- and transit-friendly hubs. This sometimes requires local governmental bodies to implement code changes that allow increased height and density downtown and regulations that not only eliminate minimum parking requirements for new development but establish a maximum number of allowed spaces.” -Wiki
If your property falls within a community region, then expect major zoning changes for your area. Community region’s are targeted for aggressive Smart Growth commercial and residential development in El Dorado County.
San Stino may qualify for a streamlined CEQA review if it meets SB 375 Sustainable (Smart Growth) Community criteria.
