You are invited to a pop-up event this Thursday June 9 at the 7th Ave Auto site (701 S Jackson)! Stop by between 4 p.m and 7 p.m. for food, games, music, and mock-ups of potential improvements in the community.

This is part of the Jackson Street Connections project, which aims to create a plan to 1) make Jackson Street safer for pedestrians, and 2) create better access to the downtown Waterfront from the Chinatown International District. The result will be a community-driven plan that can be used to advocate and leverage funding for real improvements to sidewalks, streets, and other public areas along Jackson Street. The Jackson Street Connections project is a collaboration between SCIDpda, the Wing Luke Museum, and Framework. It is being funded by Historic South Downtown.

  • Friday 6/10, 5:30-6:30 p.m.: The last scheduled community walk down Jackson Street to talk about what you like, don’t like, and want to see. Meet in Hing Hay Park.
  • Friday 6/17, 4-7 p.m.: A party in Canton Alley to share draft recommendations with the community
  • Online survey to give feedback, or stop by IDEA Space or the Wing Luke Museum to pick up a paper version.
