El Dorado Hills is an unincorporated part of El Dorado County. Most of the government services and agencies are run by the County and this includes the El Dorado County Office of Economic Development. For county residents and people interested in starting or moving a business to El Dorado Hills, this is an invaluable source of information.

The El Dorado Hills Community Services District (EDHCSD) provides the community with public parks and recreation services and facilities, CC&R oversight, design review approval and enforcement, cable television and waste/recycling collection.

This local, special district is led by the EDHCSD Board of Directors, who are elected by the residents. They employ professional management and staff who manage the diverse services and facilities to the El Dorado Hills community. District offices are conveniently located on El Dorado Hills Boulevard and Harvard Way (here’s a map.)

Specific to my area parks and athletic facilities are non-existent. Most of the homes are custom and built on some sort of uneven terrain. A number of them do have tennis courts and/or basketball courts and there are walking trails to the lake from the main roads. Also the lake is completely surrounded by a State Recreation Area, however living on the steep hills will make almost any activities away from your own property require a vehicle for travel. With launch-ramp access only a few miles away, it is no surprise to see a plethora of boats in driveways around here.
