P3_GrantAve Chinatown Community Planning

Chinatown is a vibrant neighborhood with more than 20,000 residents. With strong community institutions like churches, family associations, non-profit organizations, and events like community festivals, Chinatown stands as a cultural hub for the entire Bay Area.

The neighborhood also faces unique challenges including aging infrastructure and housing stock,

overcrowding, and economic stagnancy. Chinatown CDC is committed to ensuring Chinatown and surrounding neighborhoods retain a strong residential base, abundant social services, neighborhood-serving businesses, cultural institutions, and a historical physical character.  By organizing and empowering residents and tenants in citywide planning dialogue, we develop and advocate for concrete plans to address the diverse needs of the Chinatown community.  We work in the areas of affordable housing, equitable transportation, creative open space, livable streets, and culturally-sensitive economic development.
