The West Angeles CDC in collaboration with Global Green and other local community advocacy groups are leading the way to establish “Eco Districts”.
Districts are the systems, products, programs and procedures that reduce and encourage energy efficiency, water conservation, sustainability, livability and overall beautification of our neighborhoods.
West Angeles CDC has taken the initiative to facilitate a dialogue in our community to inform the citizens, civic leadership and the local community at large of the importance of implementing these proven sustainability methods.
Eco Districts seek to mitigate local energy and environmental problems that are currently plaguing our cities and communities. There is no limit to where an Eco District can be established, but it is crucial that due diligence be conducted and the proper consultants be contacted for your specific project.
Think of an Eco District as a personal or organizational contribution to the preservation of our environment.
