Heritage Oak Mitigation Fees Need your Voice

Written by Amber Beckler.

On Monday, July 26th at 9 a.m. in the Board of Supervisor Chambers 175 Fulweiler Avenue, Auburn, an appeal of the Placer County Planning Commission approval of a revised grading plan for the Rancho Del Oro Estates subdivision in Granite Bay will be heard by the Board of Supervisors. The appeal challenges inadequate mitigation fees for heritage oak trees and oak woodlands and failure by Planning Staff to provide substantial evidence supporting their statement of fact that the new grading proposal will have the same or fewer impacts as those identified over a decade ago. 

We are requesting residents and non-profit organizations to speak out in support of the filed appeal. Letters submitted to the board of supervisors by Friday July 23rd and public testimony given on the day of the hearing are greatly appreciated (either in person or via Zoom – agenda to be published this week). Take a stand for our precious oak woodland resources and demand accountability for equitable fees. 


Send your written correspondence to the Placer County Board of Supervisors as below but we would greatly appreciate in person or call in public comments on the day of the hearing.
