Competing Groups Want Control of El Dorado County Growth

Competing Groups Want Control of El Dorado County Growth
Posted Thursday, March 20th 2014 @ 7am  by KFBK News - Tim Lantz

Competing groups are jockeying for a spot on your November ballot, and both say they want to control growth in El Dorado County.

While both groups say they want controlled growth, one, Control Growth to Fix Our Local Roads Initiative -- is led by Region Builders, a Sacramento group of commercial builders, architects and engineers that recently led the political fight to build a downtown Sacramento basketball arena. 

The other, Fix Highway 50 Traffic First/Keep Us Rural, is led by Bill Center, a former El Dorado County supervisor and one of the figures in the landmark 1998 Measure Y effort to limit county growth.

"They want our [petition] to go away because [ours] would stop the large subdivisions," Center said.

Wood of Region Builders countered that his group believes it has a better plan for managing growth and ensuring that money is spent properly on improving roads.
