We're about to experience serious street and sidewalk construction..
Join us for updates from the City of Fresno, TPZP (high speed rail contractor) and other contractors regarding road construction in and around Chinatown. Southwest Fresno and core Downtown Fresno will also be hit with road closures/detours.
And we'll reveal the construction signage (that cone above is a clue) that we will be using to inform and entertain Chinatown customers.
Another feature of all community meetings this year will be a speaker about alleviating our capital desert (an area with difficulty in receiving funding for start-ups, expansion and improvements).
Homelessness is a Fresno problem, as it is for cities around the country and the world. Finding shelter is a successful option, but clustering homeless housing is not. Miguel Arias, Council President representing District 3, Councilmembers Esmeralda Soria and Nelson Esparza, are proposing that homeless centers house no more than 50 people, and that these shelters be spread throughout the city.
Fresno City Council meeting on Thursday, February 13 in support of this proposal.
More details later.
On a sad note, we mourn the passing of Enrique Reade of Reade and Sons here in Chinatown. He was a staunch supporter of the Chinatown neighborhood. Here's a little more about his many contributions to social justice causes.
