Youth leaders from the Ramona Gardens public housing development in Boyle Heights will continue a campaign to build the Ramona Gardens Natural Park with an anti-pollution green buffer to protect 2,000 low-income primarily Latino residents from transit-related air pollution from the adjacent fifteen-lane Interstate-10 Highway. Air quality in Ramona Gardens is among the worst statewide, according to a CalEnviroScreen map, leaving residents at a disproportionately high risk for chronic health conditions from air pollution.
