Legacy Business Study Community Forum
The following event is being organized by the City of Vancouver.
We are studying the importance of legacy businesses to people in Vancouver. Legacy businesses are stores that a community cherishes because of their:
-Connection to history
-Contribution to neighbourhood character
-Integral role in the community’s way of life
These are a key part of our city’s economy, and our daily lives. These shops and services can greatly affect how we experience our neighbourhoods.
We will use your feedback to consider what types of strategies might best support these businesses so they can continue to be a vital part of all neighbourhoods. The findings of our study will be relevant to neighbourhoods across Vancouver.
We are in the beginning stages of exploring what the strategy might entail. This study has an initial focus on Vancouver’s historic Chinatown, where we have heard these issues are most pressing.
Community Forum: At this event, an opening presentation will share draft qualities for legacy businesses in Chinatown, with a facilitated discussion to follow. Translation into Cantonese will be provided.
