As an economic and community development organization, FLS has a vision of showcasing the most unique and special elements of Vietnamese culture in Seattle. Many projects are focused on ways to make Little Saigon a beautiful, safe, and exciting place to live and visit. Check out some of the things we’re doing now!
Navigation Center Community Taskforce: this group was formed out of advocacy around lack of engagement for the siting of the proposed Navigation Center. Community members can access minutes and updates here.
Little Saigon Park: working with the Seattle Parks Department to acquire property for a park in Little Saigon.
Little Saigon Landmark: a project that came out of the Little Saigon 2020: Vision and Action Plan. Addressing some of the community’s priorities from the plan, this project proposes to build a community landmark that is a multi-use complex with a Vietnamese cultural center, retail and commercial space, and affordable housing.
Little Saigon Placemaking: working with SCIDpda, Department of Planning and Development (DPD), and the UW Dept. of Landscape Architecture, community members are gathering together to define neighborhood assets and needs in relation to neighborhood identity, urban planning, parking, and economic development.
