pollution concerns and the city's comprehensive plan:WORTH KNOWING WEDNESDAYS

This Fort Worth Report article explores how Fort Worth residents are hoping the city's new comprehensive plan will address serious pollution concerns in the Echo Heights area, which is currently classified as an “industrial growth center”.

"A slew of industrial facilities – including trucking companies, garbage collection sites and shipping centers – surround the majority Black and Hispanic community of Echo Heights. In turn, Echo Heights and nearby Stop Six residents have over the years complained of cancers, miscarriages and other serious health conditions they believe are caused or exacerbated by the incessant air pollution.

At the January meeting, organized by the Echo Heights and Stop Six Environmental Coalition, a handful of residents discussed where their community is headed – and how to move it forward."
