TRAILS ADVOCATES - YOUR SUPPORT AND INPUT IS NEEDED
The Board of Supervisors requested the Town Hall meeting at the urging of the neighbors to explain the reduced Hidden Falls expansion plan. It’s important we let the Supervisors know that we support the expansion of Hidden Falls and the reduced plan being proposed.

Some talking points for approving the Reduced Expansion Plan:
- I support approval of the final Environmental Impact Report, the Final EIR
demonstrates that the full project can be built with mitigations.
- The reduced Hidden Falls proposal reduces parking by 60% from the
original plan and a huge compromise, but we support this compromise to respect the neighbors.
- County surveys and other forums show the public has consistently shown a desire
for more public trails and open space. Survey West Placer County Region Priority: Expand Hidden Falls Regional Park Facilities. 91% of respondents to the survey, strongly or somewhat support more trails and recreation and access to open space.
- 500,000 residents of Placer County will thank you for your support to expand
The next Public Hearing will be before the Planning Commission which is scheduled for October 22, 2020. It will be very important that trails advocates be in the audience, and speak to approving Hidden Falls.
Letters can also be sent to the Planning Commission in support of Hidden Falls expansion to arrive no later than October 16. Mail to
