L.A. County Earmarks Dollars For Park-Poor Neighborhoods

UCLA’s Jon Christensen spoke with my news LA about a recent measure by LA county on increasing funding for park-poor neighborhoods.

“The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to allocate at least 30 percent of parks funding generated by a parcel tax approved in 2016 to communities deemed to be high-need.

The board approved a set of policies for funding projects under Measure A, the Safe, Clean Neighborhood Parks and Beaches Measure of 2016, as amended by Supervisor Hilda Solis.

‘Implementation is the hard part,’ said Jon Christensen, an assistant adjunct professor at the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability.”
