City Council, District 1
We are advocating that COA develop an environmental justice strategy that lists programs, policies, planning and public participation
processes, enforcement and/or rulemakings related to human health or the environment that should be revised to
- (1) promote enforcement of all health and environmental statutes in areas with minority populations and low-income populations;
- (2) ensure greater public participation;
- (3) improve research and data collection relating to the health of and environment of minority populations and low-income populations; and
- (4) identify differential patterns of consumption of natural resources among minority populations. Include in the Strategy, where appropriate, a timetable for undertaking identified revisions and consideration of economic and social implications of the revisions.
