The Floral Farms neighborhood-led area plan was created by Neighbors United/Vecinos Unidos, the neighborhood association in the area. Neighbors United/Vecinos Unidos formed in late 2018 and have been fighting to address the environmental and community injustices in Floral Farms ever since. The group is led by resident activist, Marsha Jackson, with representation from every residential street in the community. Interested in connecting with the group?
