EL CERRITO HOSTS COMMUNITY MEETINGS TO TALK ABOUT STREETS
El Cerrito, CA: The City of El Cerrito has begun to assess community priorities about the condition of the streets and how to address the need to repair and maintain residential streets in the community. The City has already received over 1,250 responses from residents who participated in a mail survey about local streets.
In the coming weeks, the City will host two community meetings to talk with residents about the issue and to hear their concerns and ideas. The meetings will be held:
Wednesday, October 10
5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Madera Elementary School, Multi Purpose Room
8500 Madera Drive (off the Arlington) in El Cerrito
Tuesday, October 16
6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
El Cerrito Community Center, City Council Chambers
7007 Moeser Lane, El Cerrito
Interested residents and business owners are encouraged to visit the City’s website at

According to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's "pavement quality report card” (issued October 18, 2006), El Cerrito is among the ten Bay Area cities with the worst streets.
The City’s sixty-eight miles of roads, particularly residential streets, are in disrepair because they are old or have not been maintained due to lack of funding. El Cerrito currently has inadequate dedicated funding to maintain current road conditions, let alone repair problem areas.
