The residents of Pacoima and the surrounding neighborhoods deserve environmental and economic justice. In addition to the obvious safety risks posed by Whiteman Airport being in a residential area, the many takeoffs and landings each day produce large amounts of toxic pollutants.
Los Angeles County is currently developing a community-informed re-envisioning process for the airport, and this week, they’re hosting two open houses as an opportunity for the public to learn about the process and share their thoughts.
I strongly encourage you to attend. For more information, please look at the flyers above.
