Place Matters Profile


Luis Colon

Now deals with evictions and housing (due to rising rents and gentrification), environmental issues, housing and disability for senior citizens, immigration and energy conservation. It was involved with the re-opening of McCarran Park Pool. It has been in the same building since 1978, when the firehouse reopened. Before, it was on White Avenue between North 8th and 9th Streets. The current building was a former funeral parlor repossessed by the city and donated to People's Firehouse.
