PROGRAM SHOWING THE "STREETSCAPE TRANSFORMATION" (HOW EL SOBRANTE MIGHT LOOK AFTER REDEVELOPMENT) IF THE COUNTY AND THE "MOVERS AND SHAKERS" OF EL SOBRANTE GET THE REDEVELOPMENT PLAN PASSED - Sorta' looks like Walnut Creek, huh??

See Del Norte Plaza (also called the "PINK PALACE") adjacent to El Cerrito Del Norte BART station for a typical smart growth building.
