The City's stewardship of Chinatown

Mayor Rick Blangiardi pulled Anton Krucky, co-founder of Tissue Genesis, out of retirement in order serve as the Executive Director of the Office of Housing. In his new role, Krucky is looking at how the City can be a better steward of Chinatown. He's attended a Downtown Chinatown Neighborhood Board meeting and has spoken with residents, business owners, and City department heads about how best to move forward.
