Biographical Note

In 1978, a social service agency, Pacoima Revitalization, Inc. (PRI) was created by Los Angeles City Councilman Bob Ronka as a non-profit public corporation to help revitalize the City of Pacoima, California. PRI was funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Community Development Department of the City of Los Angeles. The goals of the organization were: to arrange rehabilitation loans for housing, provide capital improvement monies, enhance commercial services and new employment opportunities, plant trees along main boulevards, sponsor graffiti removal, foster industrial development and community pride. Acting as a resource center for the City of Pacoima, PRI services were free of charge to local businessmen and community citizens. PRI's Board of Directors was made up of community members appointed by Councilman Ronka. The organization closed its doors in July 1981.
