El Sobrante RENEW
El Sobrante Chamber of Commerce - 3769B, San Pablo Dam Road, El Sobrante, CA 94803

Have you noticed the recent upgrades of some El Sobrante commercial properties? Organized just eight months ago, the El Sobrante Renew Collaborative is now having an impact.

We intend to build on our modest progress by continuing with ongoing projects and moving forward on several new ones. Continued success depends on getting more involvement from people like you.

Please join us at our Monday, June 17th meeting, 5:00 – 6:00pm at the El Sobrante Library Community Meeting Room (enter at the back side of the building).

Among our accomplishments and pending activities are:

  •   Established a Financial Assistance Grant Program
  •   Approved our first Financial Assistance Grant for Elks Club renovation
  •   Mapped entire downtown and established sectors of responsibility for volunteers
  •   Some sectors have been “adoptedâ€? by volunteers, many await adoption
  •   Photographed and cataloged each building in the downtown
  •   Compiled ownership list for all downtown properties
  •   Volunteer- initiated property owner contacts, encouraged property clean-up/upgrades











  •   Dam Road sound wall at Rancho Vista neighborhood: Initiate action with City of San Pablo
  •   El Portal Drive upgrades – Dam Road to Via Verde: Initiate action with City of Richmond
  •   Private Security Service Patrol – Under consideration
  •   Trash Bin Enclosure Program – Beautification Funds Grant request being prepared
