Chinatown Public Realm Plan


“Since Chinatown’s founding in 1931 it has had an active public realm where residents and visitors could participate in unique cultural experiences such as volley ball tournaments, parades, street food, or just take in the sights and sounds of one of DC’s oldest ethnic neighborhoods. Many of these traditions, such as the Chinese New Year’s Parade continue,  but others have disappeared completely as traffic demands on streets grew, sidewalks were narrowed, and regulations governing the use of public space evolved. The Chinatown Public Realm Plan is an effort to reexamine the layout and use of Chinatown sidewalks and streets, to ensure that future generations of Washingtonians will continue to enjoy the unique Chinatown public space experience.”
