What is LUPPU?

LUPPU is how land use and zoning will change in El Dorado County. Don’t doubt it. The last “U” stands for “Update” as in “Land Use Programmatic Policy UPDATE“. It’s a big, complex government process that in the end will likely have significant implications for a variety of things, trails being just one.

I’m new to LUPPU and county general plans, so don’t expect me to cover all of issues. What I will do is try to keep you informed as LUPPU relates to trails in El Dorado Hills. If you care about trails then you need to also care about LUPPU, which may positively or negatively affect all future trails and my vision for rugged trails I just recently unveiled.

    I have been involved with the EDC Economic Development Advisory Committee, Regulatory Reform subcommittee for the last four years. I have watched more than 300 people weigh in on areas of interest from farming to fire, from ranching to commercial development. What is needed in this county is jobs and we are trying to create a framework that will encourage the development of a high end technology oriented workforce.

    On March 4, 2013 I hosted a forum of EDH leadership at the EDH Library to hear local attorney Jim Brunello speak about our subcommittee and take us through the Land Use Plan Programmatic Update known as LUPPU. From that point eleven of us formed a citizen’s steering committee and created the Community Economic Development Advisory Committee – El Dorado Hills (CEDAC-EDH) and sponsored a meeting at the CSD which was attended by about 160 of your fellow EDH citizens.

    From there we created subcommittees that will feed information back to CEDAC-EDH who will then send it forward to the EDC Board of Supervisors so they can use the information to make decisions about the future of EDH.

    Please feel free to weigh in at the CEDAC-EDH website http://cedac-edh.org/ and join with us in this adventure.
