Members of the WCKNC Executive, Community Development and Land Use, and Outreach Committees will be in attendance at the press conference, as well as the 6th Street Project Consultants, Steve Rasmussen Cancian and Hongjoo Kim.
We hope to see you there!
The sidewalks and public spaces of 6th Street don’t reflect the flourishing activity or Korean character of this vibrant commercial center. WCKNC will be engaging community stake holders in a series of workshops to decide how to improve 6th Street in a way that supports this vitality in a uniquely Korean way. In the coming year, WCKNC will then build the first project chosen by the community to kickoff this long-term improvement effort.
