When residents accidentally learned about this proposed development, they organized to form the Eastwick Friends and Neighbors Coalition, and approached us for support. They were concerned about the impact of the Korman development on the health, safety, and welfare of this already overburdened neighborhood. Since 2012, we have supported EFNC in negotiating and developing relationships with city agencies, elected officials, and Korman to postpone pending development on the 128-acre parcel and work toward a community-based planning project. We are committed to working with Eastwick Friends to ensure their equitable and meaningful participation in planning for development of the future of their community.
