What’s in the future for Kay’s Resort at Silver Lake? The El Dorado Irrigation District acquired the former Kay's Silver Lake Resort when it bought a PG&E hydroelectric system in 1999. EID closed the resort facilities – including a boat launch – last year. The EID is considering selling the property to pay for rebuilding the boat launch there – the district is required to maintain the boat launch for public use.
According to Dave Eggerton, counsel for EID, the district is currently inventorying the property and doing an environmental assessment to determine the extent of potential clean up. The board created a task force comprised of two board members, President Bill George and director George Osborne, and community members, to evaluate what to do with the historic property. There currently are no dates set for public meetings on what to do with Kay’s Resort, but Eggerton says the board is anxious to make a decision early in 2008. Once the Board makes a decision, they will have a few short summer months for any construction or demolition that needs to occur. If interested parties would like to participate on the task force or be included on the e-mail distribution list for notices of public meetings on Kay’s Resort, contact Peg Campbell, EID Clerk of the board, at (530) 642-4055 or by e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots.
