Green Valley project forwarded to BOS
A convenience center on Green Valley Road was approved at the Sept. 26 El Dorado County Planning Commission meeting after a lengthy hearing.
The project now goes to the Board of Supervisors for final approval.
An unpopular development with some residents of El Dorado Hills, the 2.12-acre site at the intersection of Green Valley Road and Sophia Parkway is planned to include a gas station, convenience store, drive-through fast-food restaurant, and a single-bay car wash. The developer and owner of the property is Marc Strauch of Strauch Companies.
When the project came before the Planning Commission two months ago, a large number of residents showed up to complain about its impact on traffic and public safety. Others described it as a future source of noise, trash and light pollution and criticized its architecture since it is a gateway development into the county.
As a result of their testimony, the project was referred back to the developer.
At Thursday’s meeting, Strauch and his team of consultants came back with revised plans for the convenience center which they said would mitigate most of the complaints from residents including changes to the site’s architecture along with a deceleration lane channeling traffic into the center.
