Land Development Manual (LDM)

El Dorado County Development Services Department, in conjunction with the Department of Transportation, Environmental Management Department, County Surveyor’s Office, the Economic Development Advisory Committee, and local fire district personnel, has been working on the development of a Land Development Manual (LDM), intended to replace the Design and Improvement Standards Manual. The LDM will provide design standards and information regarding the development of land in the County, addressing roads, lot design, fire protection, water, sewage disposal, mapping requirements, and other design criteria. Previous hearings with the Board of Supervisors in October 2010 and February 2011 provided direction for the most recent draft.

Included in the update process are modifications to the Standard Plans. The draft revisions to the standard plans can be viewed at the Department of Transportation website.
