Charlton-Pollard neighborhood

The Charlton-Pollard neighborhood is a slowly dying neighborhood located between the Port of Beaumont and ExxonMobil's refinery in Beaumont.

Business and homes in the traditionally black neighborhood were directly damaged by Hurricane Rita. More importantly, the neighborhood residents haven't returned from the evacuation. Combined, these factors have a devastating influence on the neighborhood's future.
