Step right up for a say in El Dorado Hills’ future
The newly formed Community Economic Development Advisory Committee of El Dorado Hills’ steering committee is looking for a few thousand good men and women to help decide what the community will look like over the next 25 years.
In a joint interview with Village Life, CEDAC-EDH volunteers Hal Erpenbeck and Steve Ferry said community input is at the committee’s core.
“CEDAC-EDH is about determining our town’s identity and making sure we’re implementing the General Plan,” both said.
Last April when CEDAC-EDH held its first public meeting, moderator T Abraham explained, “The county is asking for our input. If we don’t step up … that void will be filled by those with specific projects or concerns,” he said. “The larger voice of the community will not be heard.”
An estimated 150 people attended that kick-off meeting. Today, regular participation stands in the dozens, said Erpenbeck and Ferry.
“What if 10 percent of the 42,000 people that live in El Dorado Hills participated in CEDAC-EDH?” asked Ferry. “That’s still 4,200 people. Where is everyone?”
