Eight residents won $100 gift cards for completing our Environmental Justice survey! Congratulations to Esteffani Roldan, Venancio Chavez, Michelle Tran, Santiago Herrera, Araceli Escobar, Laura Quijada, Diana Roque, and Patricia Caballero, and thank you to everyone who completed the survey. It was made available this spring to engage the community, with a special focus on residents in disadvantaged or Environmental Justice (EJ) communities. EJ seeks to reduce pollution and increase public investments in these communities, while ensuring their input is considered in decisions that affect them.
To learn more and share your thoughts in person, please join us at the EJ Community Open House planned for Saturday, Aug. 28, 2021, at the McFadden Senior Center, 2201 W. McFadden Ave., from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
