Thank you to the College Avenue members, officers, and

pastor Monte McClain for hosting this meeting!

We strongly encourage all who are able to do so to come to this meeting

by public transportation!



By BART: Exit at the Rockridge Station (on the Bay Point line). Walk north two blocks on College Avenue to the church.


By Bus:  AC Transit buses 51,7, and 605 pass by the church on College Avenue.


By Car:

From Highway 580 north or south: Take Highway 24 east toward Walnut Creek. Exit Claremont Avenue, take left on Claremont to College Avenue. Take right on College one block to CAPC on right side of street.


From Walnut Creek by Highway 24: Take Highway 24 west to College Avenue exit. Continue to College Avenue, take right at stop light for three blocks to CAPC on left side of street.




There is no church parking lot.  There is street parking within the several blocks around the church but most is zoned for 2 hours only.  (You would then need to move your car to a different block – because, yes, they DO check!  The meeting is scheduled with breaks as needed.)  After 5 pm there will also be parking in the Dryers/ Nestles lot behind the Church.  Enter that lot from Claremont Avenue.





There is public wireless available on the church campus but it can support only a limited number of users.  To review reports prior to the meeting and to ensure that you have ready access to all materials, please download or print the packet ahead of time.



Child Care


This is a child friendly site and the front left of the sanctuary has a kids play area.  There will not be a child care provider, but we are glad for parents (and others!) to sit with and color with the kids.





To introduce you to the neighborhood, the host church will supply a list of some of the many cafes and restaurants within very easy walking distance.  Some will even offer a special for Presbyterians this evening!  Alternately, you may bring a brown bag or visit the Trader Joes just down the street and then eat in the garden area at the church.
