Can Solano learn from Richmond economic segregation?

Next door to Solano County one may find more economic segregation?

Some say Richmond, California has the most economic segregation in the greater San Francisco Bay Area region. Richmond's low-income residents have not historically been engaged in Richmond land use policy. Richmond has oil refineries and a number of serious brownfields and Richmond toxic sites posing health and safety issues.  Wealthier Richmond residents live in certain sections, while other parts of Richmond are called slums many wealthier Richmond residents refuse even to drive through.
