Get the latest stories on how people-powered planning is bringing affordable housing, clean air, and sustainable and equitable development to nine communities across California. This California Environmental Justice Alliance webinar will feature a panel of advocate experts sharing information from CEJA’s new 2018 Green Zones Report
The webinar will also introduce CEJA’s new website, calgreenzones.org
Among other stories the webinar will highlight:
How community-led planning in National City led to the development of over 200 affordable housing units as part of a Paradise Creek Affordable Housing Project, which will also produce Old Town’s first community park, community garden, and walking trails along a restored creek area.
In the southern San Joaquin Valley, the Arvin City Council passed a groundbreaking ordinance to become the first city in oil-rich Kern county to put limits on oil and gas drilling. During this 2018 midterm election, the town resisted a flood of oil and gas Political Action Committee spending and held on to a City Council majority that will maintain EJ priorities.
In West Fresno, strong and sustained resident advocacy led to the creation of the Southwest Fresno Specific Plan, which will improve public health by prohibiting new industrial development within the community and prioritizing investments in housing, parks, transportation, grocery stores, a new community college, among other resources.
