ENVIRONMENTAL ENHANCEMENT

We are a small, well connected group of homeowners and residents committed to the enhancement and protection of our local environment. Our efforts have led to improved air quality, supported jobs and training for Los Angeles youth. We have been involved in projects ranging from small flower beautification to the grassroot involvement in the Exposition Greenways Project, The Jefferson Boulevard Treevitalization Project (Between Crenshaw & La Brea, and the tree planting in the Median Strip on Crenshaw Boulevard at the 10 Freeway.

We were nominated for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Region 9, "Earth Day Tribute" for outstanding contributions to the protection of the environment. And was also a featured earth day story on Fox 11 News. Our founder was honored as a 1996 Olympic Torch Bearer for his commitment to the Exposition Community.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

We have protesting tough issues regarding the harmful spraying of herbicides on the MTA Railroad tracks near Dorsey High and the homes between Farmdale and Crenshaw Boulevard.
Other environmental protection efforts are the controversial ECIS Sewer Project. Violations of the clean water act and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act keep us concerned about the management of our sewer system, the hydrogen sulfide odors and the disporportional impacts in our community.

We need administration assistance, landscape expertise, tree specialists, certified arborist, legal assistance, proposal writing, grant writing, newsletter publication, or simple words of encouragement.

EXPO NEIGHBORS ASSOCIATION

The Exposition Neighbors Association was founded in April of 1993 by a local homeowner and businessman. Patrick McCullough attempted to reverse neighborhood deterioration and improve property values by beautifying the abandoned railroad tracks across from his home.
Starting with his own personal efforts and with the assistance from neighbors, the area has been tremendously improved with the planting of hundreds of trees and flowers on Exposition and Jefferson Boulevards respectively.

COMMUNITY ENVIRONMENTAL ENHANCEMENT

We strive to improve the visual appearance and overall upkeep of the community through tree planting and care, streetscape projects, creative grafitti solutions, nuisance alley closures, local environmental protection, etc. Our goal is to create a pool of resources and expand our community enriching businesses. We also address nuisance business operations that have proven to be detrimental to our community.

families in an outdoor educational setting. It uses innovative, hands-on, interactive lesson modules directly related to daily impacts in our neighborhood and community. Things like smog, wastewater management, de-forestation and treevitalization, and solutions for a healthy neighborhood.
