Urgent...Save Urban Green Space! Please contact Los Angeles City Council members and urge them:
1. Not to accept the proposed amendment by 9th district councilwoman Jan Perry to allow the city to accept in lieu fees instead of following through with the condition of sale of committing 2.6 acres of park space to the local community on the South Central Farm land;
2. Stop the PIMA factory and warehouse development on the South Central Farm land. Los Angeles does not need more low wage "sweatshop" garment factories or warehouses;
3. Commit to supporting the restoration of community green space and food production land at 41st and Alameda because the South Central community needs less air and noise pollution and more parks and gardens that will bring sustainable and green jobs instead.
Spread the word!
