The DRC oversees more than 40 villages for property improvement projects, as well as new home development. It is preferred that applicants have a background in architecture, building design, civil engineering, construction, development, landscaping, or other trades of the building industry. DRC members are appointed by the El Dorado Hills Community Services District Board of Directors and must be a resident and/or property owner of the community of El Dorado Hills. Each DRC member's primary objective is to serve the community of El Dorado Hills, and to this end shall not have any conflict of interest or use the committee to promote their own personal interests or monetary gain.
