For over a decade the city has worked on a revitalization strategy, with millions in grants to preserve historic clan and society buildings, with goals that are hard to object to. But many disagree with the results so far. Is there a way to revitalize Chinatown and keep its special charm?

To discuss the way forward, our presenters are Doris Chow, co-founder of the Youth Collaborative for Chinatown, and architect and urban designer Bruce Haden, who has twice chaired the City’s Urban Design Panel. Then it is your turn to question, observe, and offer your opinions. Please feel free to bring your lunch.
