EDH CHAMBER INFLUENCES LEGISLATION
The El Dorado Hills Chamber advocates on the behalf of our business community for fair access to commerce.
Introduced by Senator Dahle
Problem: Limited full liquor licenses issued from the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) in El Dorado County deters commerce

Solution: Senate Bill 1452
Active Bill - Pending Referral 30 days from Introduction on 2.18.22:
23826.16. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, in the County of El Dorado, the department may issue no more than a total of 10 additional new original on-sale general licenses for bona fide public eating places, public premises, or both.

Housing activity is cooling off. While average sales home prices ticked higher, activity has slowed down meaningfully. 78% of the homes sold were above the $750k+ level. 

Employment numbers increased, TOT was virtually flat, and building permit valuations jumped substantially from the previous quarter thanks to a commercial building permit.
