Body

DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION

At their meeting of May 10, 2016 (Item 4) the Board approved Ordinance 5038 and set a public hearing for Final Passage (Second Reading) on June 2, 2016. 10.32.070 to Title 10 - Vehicles and Traffic of the El Dorado County Ordinance Code regulating the use of motorized vehicles on County trail facilities.

 

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

On October 1, 2013 the Parks Division presented an update to the Board on the Sacramento Placerville Transportation Corridor (SPTC).   The Board took action on the use of the SPTC and directed staff to develop an Ordinance to regulate the use of motorized vehicles on the Sacramento Placerville Transportation Corridor (SPTC). 

 

Working with the Sheriff's Department and County Counsel, a draft Ordinance was developed that would regulate the use of motorized vehicles, allowing for exceptions, on all County trail facilities.  The Ordinance, if adopted, would allow the Sheriff's staff to patrol the trails and cite users in violation of the regulations.

 

ALTERNATIVES

Not passing this ordinance would allow motorized use on the corridor, leaving the Sheriff with no mechanism to site.

 

OTHER DEPARTMENT / AGENCY INVOLVEMENT

Sheriff's Department and County Counsel

 

CAO RECOMMENDATION

Chief Administrative Office concurs with the recommendation.

 

FINANCIAL IMPACT

There is no Net County Cost associated with this Agenda item.
