"Grand Plug-in" Celebration

Join us for the Grand Re-opening Celebration, Wednesday, June 19, 2019 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. Through our Energy Savings Project, EDHCSD has put in 30,634 square feet of solar panels, and we are excited to share the details along with the staggering anticipated savings with you!

El Dorado Hills Community Services District is completing a sustainability project providing solar and LED lighting upgrades to District parks and facilities.

Solar Shade Structures have been installed in El Dorado Hills Community Park and Promontory Park, Solar Thermal has been installed at Community Pool, and LED lighting upgrades have been completed at many District facilities.

Asphalt and ADA Renovations Project

In coordination with the 2018 Energy Project, the EDH Community Park Asphalt and ADA Renovations Project is well underway. Thank you for your patience while this work has progressed.

Slurry and striping of all asphalt surfaces was completed June 15, 2019. Extensive portions of concrete identified for replacement have been removed and re-poured. Walkway removal and replacement with ADA compliant walkways have been completed.

Removal of the plants from the median islands located in the parking lot area between the Pavilion and Teen Center is complete. Drought-tolerant/zero-scape landscaping has been installed in these areas to support our efforts in the way of sustainability as well as being low-maintenance.

2019 Sustainability Project Updates

Updates for the week of June 17-21

Projects are winding up on the 2019 Sustainability project. Punch list items continued to be completed this past week and will wrap up at Community Pakr on Tuesday. Additional utility connections and detailed items will be addressed at Promontory as well. One of the most noticable improvements this past week was the asphalt resealing and restriping. Things just look better with a new coat of paint!

Being just two short days away from our GRAND PLUG-IN EVENT on Wednesday, the work that you will see around Community Park will be:

 1)      Preparation for pouring concrete bases for the north parking light poles

2)      Sod installation at the Community Pool.

3)      Minor parking lot stall impacts to allow completion of the remaining striping and electrical tie-ins.

4)      Installation of a handrail on the north side of the Pavilion.

5)      Installation of ADA required signage.

6)      Finishing touches on the medians with the last load of bark.

7)      Prepping the barked lot area for our GRAND PLUG-IN and Food Trucks.

Parking
All parking is has opened, except for those few areas where work will be taking place. The Harvard gate is now open 24/7 now that school is out.
