(PLACERVILLE, CA) El Dorado County to Hold Public Workshop on Missouri Flat Area Master Circulation and Financing Plan Phase II

Public Workshop: Tuesday, August 29, 2017. 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

The County of El Dorado will be holding a workshop to discuss the Missouri Flat Area Master Circulation and Financing Plan (MC&FP) Phase II project. The MC&FP Phase II is proposed to provide a framework to fund roadway infrastructure improvements, as needed, to the U.S. Highway 50/Missouri Flat Road Interchange and adjacent arterial and collector roads within the existing MC&FP area as established with Phase I. Phase II is needed to continue and expand the work begun in Phase I to alleviate projected traffic congestion and facilitate additional anticipated commercial development on the Missouri Flat Road corridor.

The workshop will provide an overview of the project and the public’s opportunity to provide input as the project moves forward.

The workshop will be held on the following date and time:

Tuesday, August 29, 2017
6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Planning Commission Hearing Room
2850 Fairlane Court, Building C
Placerville, CA 95667

Application for Focus Groups accepted through 5:00 PM on August 30, 2017:

El Dorado County will be holding a series of focus groups to discuss key issues and concerns relating to the development of the Missouri Flat Area Master Circulation and Financing Plan Phase II. Participants will be asked to attend two meetings over the course of the project, each lasting approximately two hours. Two groups will be formed to represent the following interests: 

Local Businesses/Economic Development Interests (Chambers of Commerce, tourism and film authorities, agriculture, recreation, and eco- and agri-tourism industry) Building Industry/Developers/Real Estate Interests 

We anticipate that each group will include 8-12 people representing diverse viewpoints within the subject area. The first round of focus groups, which will identify key issues and concerns regarding the Plan, will be tentatively scheduled in October, 2017. The second round of focus groups, to discuss the proposed Financing Plan, will be tentatively scheduled in May, 2018. All focus groups meetings will be held at County offices. Applications will be accepted through 5:00 PM on August 30, 2017, either online or in writing at the front counter of the County of El Dorado, Community Development Services, Government Center Building C, 2850 Fairlane, Placerville, CA, 95667.
