CCAR’s Richmond Building – Your Opinion Matters
CCAR’s Richmond office is in an area that is experiencing ongoing safety concerns. The Board of Directors is considering the potential sale of the current Richmond site in order to purchase another property in a better location within District 5.
This move will allow us to protect our assets and better serve District 5 members (District 5 includes the cities of Crockett, El Cerrito, El Sobrante, Hercules, Kensington, Richmond Annex, Richmond, Point Richmond, Pinole, Rodeo and San Pablo).
