The County of El Dorado Community Development Agency, as the Lead Agency, has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report ("DEIR") for the General Plan Biological Resources Policy Update and Oak Resources Management Plan ("ORMP") that includes an Oak Resources Conservation Ordinance. The DEIR is being prepared in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the CEQA Guidelines. This DEIR is available for public and agency review for a 45-day period beginning Thursday, June 30, 2016 and ending at 5:00 p.m. on Monday August 15, 2016.

The purpose of this comment period is to solicit comments from public agencies and interested parties/persons regarding the content of the DEIR and potential environmental impacts that may result from the project implementation; not the positive or negative attributes of the proposed project itself.

The County of El Dorado Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the DEIR at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, August 11, 2016 in the Building C Hearing Room, 2850 Fairlane Court, Placerville, CA 95667. A subsequent scheduled public hearing at a Board of Supervisors meeting will be conducted upon completion of the Final EIR when the County considers action on the project. The County must certify the Final EIR prior to Project approval. The Final EIR will include comments submitted along with written responses to those comments.

All written public and agency comments for this DEIR must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, August 15, 2016. Comments submitted via email must either be included in the body text of the email or as an attachment in Microsoft® Word or Adobe® PDF format. Please email, fax, mail or hand-deliver your comments to:
