Body
 
Background: Request to consider Ordinance OR10-0001/Grading Ordinance initiated by EL DORADO COUNTY. Proposed amendment to County Ordinance, Title 15.14 - Grading, Erosion, And Sediment Control (e.g. Grading Ordinance), increases the required permit threshold from 50 cubic yards to 250 cubic yards. The Grading Ordinance regulates grading within the unincorporated area of El Dorado County. Its purpose is to safeguard life, limb, health, property and public welfare, and prevent the pollution of watercourses. The Grading Ordinance ensures that the intended use of a graded site is consistent with the El Dorado County General Plan, any Specific Plans adopted thereto, the adopted Storm Water Management Plan, California Fire Safe Standards and applicable El Dorado County ordinances including the Zoning Ordinance and the California Building Code. All grading activity, regardless if a permit is required, is mandated to comply with the Grading Ordinance and all other related codes and ordinances including requirements to avoid or mitigate any potentially significant effects of the graded site. [Project Planner: Shawna Purvines] (Negative Declaration prepared)
 
This amendment was considered by the Planning Commission on July 8, 2010, and was recommended for approval (4-0). The minutes from this meeting are attached.
