What is the “yellow house controversy” all about?
El Dorado Hills was “in the news” with the story of a yellow house, cited by the Design Review Board of the Community Services District for being painted an “unsuitable” color. Homeowner Michelle Valencia in Crown Village was forced to paint her house before being granted permission to put on a new roof. The controversy riled up many local residents and brought in some unwanted publicity for El Dorado Hills when the regional and national press picked up the story and used it to poke fun at communities who have what many people perceived as “silly” C&R rules and regulations.
In 1983, El Dorado Hills voters passed a ballot measure giving the El Dorado Hills Community Services District authority to enforce CC&Rs. Included was an assessment of up to $10 per year per parcel to fund CSD enforcement of the CC&Rs. The CSD enforces two-thirds of more than 104 sets of CC&Rs in El Dorado Hills.
The community services district oversees youth sports, teen programs, a skate park, a senior center and public parks, one of which is named for Allen H. Lindsey, an El Dorado Hills developer.
