Since the Vine Street Street Expressway, PCDC has represented Chinatown in matters of zoning and development. As Chinatown’s Registered Community Organization, we work with City agencies and community members to ensure that Chinatown has a voice in land use and development matters. From promoting best practices for land use, to collecting community feedback on zoning map updates, we are devoted to community-driven, community-engaged efforts to preserve, protect and promote Chinatown.
PCDC hosts neighborhood planning meetings that give the public the opportunity to vote on proposed developments for Chinatown. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month, from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM at PCDC’s office, 301-05 N 9th Street. All are welcome to participate. The zoning variances in discussion for each month can be found by signing up for PCDC’s newsletter, or online under the “News” tab: http://chinatown-pcdc.org/category/pcdc-news/
PCDC also actively works to develop innovative uses for Chinatown’s public space includes 10th Street Plaza and the Chinatown Parklet located on 10th and Cherry Street.
