Willamette Industrial Area Neighbors and Greg Bourget from Portland Clean Air- The Willamette Industrial Area Neighbors include neighborhood reps from Linnton, St Johns, Overlook, Cathedral Park, and Pearl District, Neighborhood Associations as approved by their boards. Eliot is the worst affected neighborhood from air pollution in our NECN coalition boundaries due to proximity to Swan Island, which ranks in the worst 2% of precincts nationwide for diesel particulate. They want to set up a diesel monitor in the Eliot neighborhood and designate someone from Eliot that could meet for an hour every two months, to share the data about their neighborhood occasionally with Willamette Industrial Area Neighbors and hopefully report back to ENA.
