El Cerrito is a west Contra Costa County bedroom community with a population of about 25,000 people. El Cerrito rises from the flats up into the hills, at an elevation of about 1,000 feet. The result is many hill homes having great views of the bay. El Cerrito, like nearby Kensington and Albany, are all quiet towns that are popular with U.C. Berkeley alumni, staff, and professors, many of whom make their homes in these communities. El Cerrito has two BART stations, and is seven miles from the bay bridge -- true, those are seven bumper to bumper miles along I-80, but seven miles is only seven miles, and so the commute is not too bad at all. El Cerrito is served by the West Contra Costa Unified School District. El Cerrito is a city that is almost entirely "built out". It is expected to add no more than 1,000 more residents in the next 20 years.
