The Contra Costa Centre Association was formed in 1985 by fourteen project owners to create the most unique live/work environment in Northern California. Since its inception business owners, transit leaders, county officials and area residents have worked together to create what it is today, Contra Costa Centre Transit Village. A key component to the Transit Village is the Contra Costa Centre Transportation Demand Management Program which was formed in 1989. At that time, the 14 project owners contributed over $1.5 million dollars to be used exclusively for employee transportation demand management programs. Then in order to provide on-going funding for Contra Costa Centre transit programs in 2002 the 14 project owners casted their votes approving a $200,000 annual tax assessment for transportation programs with the creation of the County Service Area (CSA) M-31 Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Assessment District. The assessment, based on the square foot floor area, is the foundation of the Contra Costa Centre Association’s ongoing commitment to minimize the use of single-occupancy vehicles at the Transit Village.
Green Space, Trails, Restaurants and Meeting Space
Beautifully landscaped and maintained common areas, medians and eight acres of green space enhance the Centre’s working environment. Dining choices including fourteen restaurants and delis, two hotels, a sports club and spa, business meeting and civic space bring businesses, employees and residents together creating a truly vibrant, mixed-use community.
Resident Deputy Program
Adding another level of safety and security for the Transit Village area, the Contra Costa Centre Association has established a 40-hour a week Contra Costa County Resident Deputy Program. The Centre’s exclusively assigned Resident Deputy Sheriff provides dedicated law enforcement services to Centre area businesses and employees, as well as for area residents. The Resident Deputy has an on-site Centre office in space provided at the PMI Plaza building.
