Development on West Slope to be reviewed

Mike Pottage

The El Dorado Planning Commission will revisit Pilot Hill Ranch, a huge development proposal for 1,814 acres of land straddling Highway 49 north of Rattlesnake Bar at its July 9 meeting.

The western slope development was one of the driving forces behind the move to qualify and pass Measure A on the June primary ballot. The measure failed.

The Pilot Hill project would add 975 residential lots in El Dorado County, grouping the housing on 175 acres. Another 274 acres are reserved for a golf course and clubhouse.

Developers want to have seven acres in commercial, with eight more acres set aside for commercial activity related to tourism. A community park, an 11-acre school site, on-site wastewater treatment plant and 1,107 acres of open space have been drawn on the planning maps. The project was created and is being advanced by A&B Development.

Planning Commissioners heard the details of the environmental draft plan May 14, and this session Thursday at 1:30 p.m. continues that hearing. The Planning Commission will open its session at the Building C Hearing Room, 2850 Fairlane Court, Placerville, at 8:30 a.m. All of the 10 agenda items involve west slope properties.
