El Sobrante Downtown

Overview

On June 7, 2011, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors approved the El Sobrante General Plan Amendment (ESGPA), which revised the Land Use Element and Transportation-Circulation Element of the Contra Costa County General Plan.

The ESGPA is the latest product of many years of community based efforts to revitalize El Sobrante's commercial core and is a major first step in transforming downtown El Sobrante into a pedestrian friendly, vibrant business district that will attract visitors and residents to shop, dine, and conduct business in downtown.

As a result of the passage of the ESGPA, the County will be rezoning the commercial core to a P-1 District or Planned Unit Development, which will create a zoning program tailored specifically to downtown El Sobrante.  The El Sobrante P-1 Zoning Program will be a single document designed to promote the area by providing property owners with an easy to use guide for development that will enhance El Sobrante's unique character.

From August 2011 to August 2012, Supervisor Gioia's office and the County's Department of Conservation & Development will be working with a group of community stakeholders to help inform and develop the zoning program document.  The meetings will be accessible to the public. The group will also be holding quarterly meetings with the general public to update residents and stakeholders on the progress of the document.

Check back on here for dates of the quarterly meetings.
