It also aims to decrease the pollution created by the freeway and the Port of San Diego by adding more trees to the highest polluted area streets for we all breath the same air. The projects aim to inspire, heal and empower the community by emphasizing the character of the city, reminding us of the culture, tradition, and history of this community.
