Around 100 people stopped by the Little Saigon Business District planning booth at the August 24 Celebrate Little Saigon festival. Festival-goers from Seattle and other parts of King County including Issaquah, Lynnwood, Bellevue, and Tukwila had a chance to talk with DPD Community Development staff and Friends of Little Saigon volunteers about what they like about Little Saigon and their dreams for the future of the business district. Little Saigon is the social, cultural, and economic center for the Vietnamese and other Southeast Asian communities in Seattle and King County. Beginning in October, the Little Saigon Business District planning effort will look at strategies to help Little Saigon grow while maintaining its unique identity, shopping, and cultural experience.
