The community belongs in Los Angeles City Hall! And here we are on July 31st
The three Clean Up Green Up communities were in City Hall to celebrate a recent City Council victory for the cutting-edge Clean Up Green Up environmental health measure. A June 12-0 vote approved the LA City Planning Department to develop the innovative Clean Up Green Up policy that will reduce and prevent pollution and support economic revitalization in three Los Angeles toxic hotspot neighborhoods—Boyle Heights, Pacoima and Wilmington.
