We DID meet our neighbors and were welcomed by some local dignitaries. Thanks to Mayor Lee Brand, Supervisor Sal Quintero. Assemblymember Joaquin Arambula, Fire Chief Kerri Donis and FPD SW District Commander Captain Mark Salazar. We include them all as friends of Chinatown.
What a tremendous effort by the Fresno Fire Department. Besides offering their facility, they kicked in for cleanup. And then there’s Robert Castillo, FFD Public Information Officer. He served on the committee from the start, as well as doing all the barbecuing and bringing tables, chairs and supplies.
This would not have happened without the tremendous help of our CFF board, especially Morgan Doizaki, June Stanfield and Barbara Wilson. And we owe so much to Meet Your Neighbors chair, and volunteer, Gloria Flores. Also thanks to Clay Gilpin, Enrique Reade and Yuji Ishibashi.
No event works without sponsors. We’re very grateful to our Meet Your Neighbor sponsors.
This is our new office.
The door on the right. Our new address is 1433 Kern Street.
We’ll be ready to open the office on October 2, with hours on Tuesdays from 11 am to 4 pm for the time being. And look for our December 4 Open House.

Chinatown Residents Needed!
Who are our residents?
Where do they live?
How many residential units are available?
How can we draw residents to our neighborhood?
This building is on the corner of F and Kern Streets. See all those second story windows? Those could be new residences. Learn more about SROs (Single Room Occupancy) and apartments on second stories around Chinatown.
Join us on Tuesday, November 6 from 5:30-6:30, location to be determined. That’s the day all of us are going to vote. There will be a prize drawing among voters – bring your voter sticker or the stub from your absentee ballot.
