New Homes | New Destinations
We are a group of local community members advocating for the El Cerrito Plaza BART station to become a vibrant center with mixed-income housing, commerce, and public spaces that enhance the existing neighborhood and furthers the Plaza’s potential to serve as a community-gathering hub for all.
We believe in a vibrant El Cerrito Plaza where current and future El Cerritans and the broader East Bay community can live, shop, dine, walk, bike, sit, travel, and simply enjoy a beautiful, community-oriented setting where all are welcome.

What is a Plaza for the People?
Housing for All
Market rate and affordable housing, with units of all sizes for singles, families, and households of all types.
A vibrant destination where the broader community can gather and enjoy. Pedestrian-friendly spaces where people can explore, congregate, relax, shop, dine, and play.
The station should be accessible to all, encouraging walking, biking, and public transportation.
