Bass Lake

1) On 4/28/2016 the Planning Commission approved changes to the Conditions of Approval for 3 projects that alter the concurrency requirements for road improvements, and will allow the specific plan development to move forward. This decision does not go to the Board of Supervisors automatically, and will be final if not appealed. The 3 projects are Hawk View (TM00-1371R), Bell Woods (TM01-1380R), and Bell Ranch (TM96-1321R).

Update 6/16/16:  
Appeal of PC decision filed May 11 by A. Chaudhary has been withdrawn.

Misc. Resources:





Link to the 2013 staff memo that was the basis for the BOS to deny these concurrency changes previously:  https://eldorado.legistar.com/View.ashx?M=F&ID=2722991&GUID=608F6A21-385E-42FE-B479-1A9D97708D0B

2) The General Plan & Zoning update approved in Dec. 2015 changed the lake parcel zoning from natural open space in perpetuity, to low intensity recreational use (RFL). Legal action was filed by RCU (www.RuralCommunitiesUnited.org) to overturn the blanket rezoning of 37,000+ parcels, which included this parcel.

*

3) the Regional Park proposal is considered an open item with the County Parks Dept, but it is not currently being actively pursued. The fate of Bass Lake, as affected by a sale of the property, is undetermined, but is under discussion in many county venues.  Will it become a regional park? a school? soccer fields?  See the links below for more info, and voice your opinions/concerns with your Supervisor, and that of District 1 (Mikulaco).
