It is a three-year plan that has been developed over the past two years on the direction of the Mayor and Council, and includes such measures as a tenant recruitment strategy, restoration of heritage buildings, and the cleaning up of public spaces.
It aims to improve the retail mix in Chinatown, protect and enhance cultural and heritage assets, and to increase the appeal of Chinatown’s public spaces. The plan also seeks to increase seniors housing and revitalize laneways with dynamic temporary street events.
Mayor Robertson and City Council are strong supporters of building a more vibrant Chinatown, creating a stronger local economic foundation in a way that respects and is enhanced by the legacies of Chinatown’s unique history.
The strategy approved today is a key component of the City’s work to meet that goal.
