Overview of the Carson Creek Specific Plan and Park/Open Space Development

Carson Creek Specific Plan
The Carson Creek Specific Plan covers 710 acres of land south of Highway 50 and South of El Dorado Hills Town Center along Latrobe Road. The Carson Creek development is situated to the West of Latrobe Road, borders the El Dorado Hills Business Park and includes the Heritage El Dorado Hills community. The Carson Creek Specific Plan calls for a mixed use development with approximately 1,700 housing units; 40,000 square feet of commercial use; 500,000 square feet of research and development uses; 780,000 square feet of industrial uses; 37 acres of parkland; and 200 acres of open space.

Heritage El Dorado Hills includes a gated living experience of 1060 +/- age-restricted homes, with a large greenbelt and open space, trails, clubhouses, and private recreation facilities. Heritage Village Park is the first El Dorado Hills CSD park on the west side of Latrobe Road, south of Hwy 50.

Park & Open Space Development
Lennar Homes, the developer of Heritage, entered into a parkland dedication agreement with the District in 2015. The 4.65 acre park is to be deeded to the District within 60 days after Lennar Homes has completed the park development. This new park is located at Carson Crossing Drive and Palmdale Drive at the South entrance to the Heritage El Dorado Hills development.
