Clean Up, Green Up
The Clean Up Green Up environmental health policy proposal would establish Green Zones in three target areas, Pacoima, Boyle Heights and Wilmington, combining economic incentives with traditional planning tools to reduce and prevent pollution. It promotes collaboration among government agencies, residents and businesses. The Clean Up Green Up policy offers the promise of a balanced solution to the problem of the over concentration of polluting land uses adjacent to homes, schools, parks and other sensitive uses.

Pacoima Beautiful was created by the community to improve the community. Our community members are the reason why our organization exists. Our “members” identify the issues and for over 20 years we have taught them how to find their voices to advocate for environmental justice in their homes, schools and neighborhoods. Their strength and engagement is what drives our mission.
Our doors are always open to community members that are seeking to learn more about the community and how they can become engaged in creating a more equitable, sustainable community.
Member Meetings are hosted every 4th Thursday of the month at Pacoima Neighborhood City Hall from 6:00pm until 8:00pm, if you would like to attend please contact Felipe Escobar or Mayra Soto at (818) 899-2454
