"It is the Projects"

The Rodeo Projects is the neighborhood right next to the ConacoPhillips Refinery in Rodeo, CA. This is, it seems, what the name indicates, low cost housing for those in need. And looks somewhat like you might expect: very shabby looking apartments with boarded up windows and stuff laying around in the front yard.

As you might expect there is a bit of crime in the area, though not too much. About a dozen assaults have been reported in the neighborhood in the past six months and about two dozen more just beyond the borders. There have also been about the same number burglaries as well.

The schools here are actually pretty bad too. The local elementary being solidly below average.

Put simply, this isn’t the kind of place that I think people would choose to live if given a better option.
  • Very Inexpensive
  • Cool Nearby Dive Bars
  • Close to the Bay
  • Some Crime
  • Delapidated Looking
  • Right Next to the Refinery
