To Whom it May Concern:

It has come to the attention of the undersigned El Sobrante Valley residents that a pending buyer of the Adachi Nursery intends to redevelop the property for a SERVICE STATION AND LIQUOR STORE. By adding our names to this petition we are expressing our opposition to such a project for the following reasons:

1. A liquor store at the Valley View/Sobrante Avenue Adachi site would violate Section 82.38.604 of the Contra Costa County Zoning Ordinance which states: “ A new alcoholic beverage sales commercial activity is not permitted within four hundred feet of any public or private accredited school (in this case Valley Christian School) or an alcohol or other drug abuse recovery to treatment facility (in this case the meeting place of Alcoholics Anonymous).

2. We need businesses that fulfill the design principles set forth in the Downtown El Sobrante Planned Unit Development P-1 Zoning and Design Guidelines that apply to the Adachi property. These are:

- Preserve, enhance and capture El Sobrante’s small, suburban to rural character;

- Provide visual continuity along street frontages;

- Encourage community interaction and pedestrian activities through design;

- Promote non-auto transportation such as walking, bicycling and public transportation; and,

- Respect and enhance El Sobrante’s natural environment.

A typical service station/commercial retail store would just be more of the same and does not accomplish the El Sobrante Valley community these principles envision.

We therefore intend to take further action to stop this development if the proponent pursues its approval through the County-required Conditional Use Permit process.
