Open El Cerrito


Open El Cerrito is an online forum for civic engagement. Check out what others are saying about important El Cerrito topics, and join the conversation by posting your own thoughts. City officials will read the statements to learn more about what people are thinking.

The City of El Cerrito has contracted with OpenGov, to run Open El Cerrito. OpenGov is a non-partisan company whose mission is to broaden civic engagement and enhance public trust in government. They will keep your information confidential per their strict privacy agreement.

When you post your first statement, you will be asked for your name and home address. This confidential information is used to identify which statements are from local residents.

As with any public comment process, participation in Open Town Hall is voluntary; the City will consider input from this forum along with all other channels for participation.

However you choose to participate, thanks for helping us build a better El Cerrito and fulfill the vision of the City of El Cerrito as a safe, connected, and environmentally focused Bay Area destination with vibrant neighborhoods, businesses and public places, and diverse cultural, educational and recreational opportunities for people of all ages.
