(PLACERVILLE, CA) – El Dorado County recently updated the Zoning Ordinance (Title 130 of the County Ordinance Code) with minor amendments. Most of the changes were correcting minor formatting errors and typos to ensure internal consistency between the Articles contained within the Zoning Ordinance. The amendment also included 11 parcel specific rezones to several properties which were identified as having a documented mapping error.
In addition to formatting corrections, outdoor entertainment uses are now allowed with the approval of a Conditional Use Permit in the Commercial Main Street (CM) zone; personal service uses are allowed either by right or with the granting of a Conditional Use Permit in the Professional Office (CPO) zone; and winery production is allowed with the granting of a Conditional Use Permit in the Commercial Main Street (CM) zone.
"This is the first update to the Zoning Ordinance since it was comprehensively updated in December of 2015," said Roger Trout, Planning and Building Department Director. "All affected property owners of the parcels proposed for rezones were notified by direct mail (including mailings to adjacent property owners within a 500-foot radius). All public hearings for the Zoning Ordinance Minor Amendment project were publicly noticed to provide all interested parties opportunities to participate in the process."
The Board of Supervisors adopted the Zoning Ordinance Minor Amendment on August 14, 2018 and it became effective on September 13, 2018.
The adopted ordinance is posted on the County website at: https://www.edcgov.us/Government/longrangeplanning/Pages/2017-Zoning-Ordinance-Updates.aspx. For more information, contact Planning Services at (530) 621-5355.
