Boyle Heights — Standing at the podium, Martha Seva spoke about her journey as a former occupant at 2407 E. First St. and her return to the address that is now the new Cielito Lindo apartment complex.
Speaking at last month’s grand opening, the mother of two recalled that a four-unit, two-story house previously sat at this location, where she was a tenant for seven years.
Under the right of first return negotiated with developer East LA Community Corporation (ELACC), she now pays less for her apartment than the $1,000 monthly rent she was previously paying.
Boyle Heights Beat is a bilingual community newspaper produced by its youth and a sister website with stories also produced by community members “por y para la comunidad.”
