The purpose of this Collaborative is to develop a community driven action plan for mitigating the risks associated with environmental and health disparities. HSIC has identified a significant number of health and environmental issues that require attention in Inglewood and neighboring Lennox, including: transportation, air quality, healthy food and urban agriculture, urban greening, water conservation, renewable energy, waste, economic development, healthy eating and active living, and community engagement.
HSIC intends to create the following three action plans:
1) An Urban Greening Plan for Inglewood and Lennox, CA
2) A Climate and Health Action Plan for Inglewood
3) A Health Action Plan for Inglewood
HSIC is sharing these documents at community meetings for public comment and review. Once finalized, the Collaborative will present these plans to policy makers with the goal of influencing the City of Inglewood’s General Plan update.
