Welcome to Obamaland!!

"Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves. So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important." ---Former Defense Secretary William S. Cohen DoD News Briefing Monday, April 28, 1997

"In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages ,famine, and the like would fit the bill...All of these are caused by human intervention...The real enemy, then, is humanity itself..." - Aurelio Peccei - founder of elite think tank, Club of Rome

Contra Costa Community Development Dept. websites with documents pertaining to the Downtown El Sobrante/Appian Corridor Redevelopment Plan

California Redevelopment Law - section on Project Area Committees

Reports from past Project Area Committee ("PAC") meetings and other public redevelopment meetings on the so-called Downtown/Appian Way El Sobrante Redevelopment Plan

 

See Grand Jury investigation of County Redevelopment Agency!! See report

The Redevelopment Agency can seize your property without your consent!

The redevelopment area runs roughly from El Portal to Appian Way along San Pablo Dam Road, and up Appian Way all the way to Valley View including the triangle. If you own property on these two strips, your property could be subject to seizure using the eminent domain powers of the Redevelopment Agency.

 

Redevelopment advocates will tell you that it will help the community, especially minorities, the elderly, and the poor. In fact, redevelopment hurts the most vulnerable members of our society. The only ones who benefit are development interests with little or no stake in El Sobrante.

A Study by the prestigious National Center for Public Policy Research concluded that "smart growth" and other redevelopment activities hurt the underclass at disproportionately high rates.

If the proposed type of redevelopment had been adopted nationally ten years ago:

1) 260,000 minority homeowners would not own their own homes today;

2) one million homeowners of all races would not own their own homes today;

3) the average home price would have increased by $10,000 in 2002 dollars;

4) the average cost of renting a home or apartment would have increased six percent.

The End of El Sobrante as we know it!

Are you ready for SuperStores and strip malls on San Pablo Dam Road and Appian Way? Read Redevelopment, the Unknown Government, an online book which describes and documents what redevelopment really is all about.

What You can do to Save El Sobrante

Can Redevelopment be stopped? Yes, by concerned citizens like you and your neighbors.

 

Read Chapter 10 of "Redevelopment, the Unknown Government".

 

Come to the El Sobrante Municipal Advisory Council ("MAC") meetings held on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7AM behind the El Sobrante Library in the meeting room and the El Sobrante Planning and Zoning ("P&Z") meetings on the 2nd Thursday of each month at the same location.

LET YOUR NEIGHBORS know what is happening.

Call the Contra Costa Redevelopment Agency at 925-335-1275 and request copies of all information on the "Downtown El Sobrante Redevelopment project."

Call the Contra Costa Community Development Dept. at 925-335-1290 and request the info packet entitled "Downtown El Sobrante Transportation and Land Use Plan". This shows in detail the plans for the San Pablo Dan Rd. corridor including pathways into the neighborhood behind the Library from Dam Rd. and another major road above Taco Bell.

Redevelopment plans HAVE been stopped in communities where the citizens get involved, go to community meetings and let their public officials know they are against redevelopment.

The community of Oak Grove, Oregon (a suburb of the "smart growth"/redevelopment model city of Portland) managed to save their little community, one very similar to El Sobrante, by coming out in big numbers, carrying signs and letting their public officials they were AGAINST redevelopment.

They are graciously allowing the former owners to rent space in the new complex (at more than double their current payments).
