Document Description
The goal of the proposed project is to construct and operate an animal control facility for the western slope of El Dorado County. The proposed project would replace the existing western slope animal control facility currently located in Placerville. Key elements of the main building would consist of space to house animals, office space, together with an area for the public to interact with animals available for adoption. Additional outbuildings and fencing will be constructed for the housing of larger livestock, together with fenced area outdoor exercise area for dogs and a dog park available for public use. In addition to the 15,000 square foot main building, site improvements would include outbuildings, together with field fencing for livestock and 47 parking spaces for staff and visitors. The holding area for dogs would be inside, except for outdoor exercise areas that would be in use during the day time hours. Anticipated hours the facility would be open to the public are as follows: Monday and Tuesday - 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, Wednesday - 1:30 pm to 7:00 pm, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, and closed on Sunday and major holidays. Staff will occupy the facility during non-public hours. In addition to these hours, staff will provide on-call service 24 hours a day. The facility anticipates housing 32-45 dogs, 28-40 cats, 2-6 larger animals (livestock), and 2-10 small animals on a daily basis. Access to the facility will be from newly proposed roadways connecting the facility to Pleasant Valley Road.
