Thanks again to everyone who came out to provide feedback at our first community workshop on May 18th. Our team is compiling the feedback we received and gearing up for our second community workshop in mid-July (exact date and time will be announced in late June). The presentation from the May 18th workshop can be found on our project page under “Meeting Materials.” Here are some photos from the workshop:
Photo 1: Opening presentation, featuring Jim Lee from SWA, who took us through the history of Portsmouth Square and the current conditions. The high level of turnout meant that we had a full audience in attendance.
Photo 2: Members from the Chinatown community engaged in conversation about Portsmouth Square.
Photo 3: Members of our team were instrumental in explaining the activity items at each of the workshop stations to members of the community in Cantonese, resulting in high levels of participation.
Photos 4 and 5: Portsmouth Square community members of all ages voting on their preferences for future park uses and the character of park features.
