GVA supports the 'Fix Traffic/Keep us Rural' initiative
Where to sign the RCU initiative!!
When enough signatures have been gathered, these two policies will be placed on the November ballot for the voters of El Dorado County to decide on:
FIX HIGHWAY 50 TRAFFIC FIRST. Policy TC-Xc. If CalTrans determines that traffic on any Highway 50 road segment west of the City of Placerville has reached, or is forecast to reach, Level of Service F (LOS F = stop-and-go, gridlock) during weekday, peak-hour commute periods, then the County shall not approve single-family detached housing subdivisions of 5 or more parcels until cumulative Highway 50 traffic levels are improved and stay below LOS F.
KEEP US RURAL. Policy 126.96.36.199.1. Lands designated in the General Plan on the effective date of this measure as: (1) open space, agricultural lands or natural resource shall remain in these land use categories, and (2) low density residential, medium density residential or rural residential housing shall not be rezoned to higher densities. Land use designation and zoning changes may be allowed in these categories (1, 2) for non-residential (economic development) projects or agricultural purposes if compatible with surrounding land uses.

Development coming to the Green Valley corridor:
NO MORE REZONES intensifying traffic!
Hwy 50 is at level of service F (Caltrans letter). Measure Y does not allow new subdivisions such as Dixon Ranch. Help convince our Supervisors they must follow the law!
Current traffic count at EDH Blvd/GreenValley Rd. intersection: 14,431 DT (daily trips)
Additional daily car trips on area roads (so far) with proposed projects...over10,000!
