The OTCTCA’s Mission

OTCTCA recognizes all of the diverse components of the community, and seeks to facilitate communication and collaborative work between these stakeholders.

The main objectives of the OTCTCA are:

  • To promote education and an exchange of information for everyone within Old Town Chinatown so that they may fully participate in the governance and future direction of the neighborhood.
  • To broaden channels of communication between residents, property owners, business owners, employees, and other stakeholders within Old Town Chinatown, and with City Officials in matters affecting neighborhood livability.
  • To work in concert with for-profit, non-profit and governmental entities, including the City of Portland and Multnomah County, so that Old Town Chinatown is recognized as a united community.
  • To further activities and development that will raise the level of residential, commercial, and industrial activity consistent with the interests of community stakeholders, the neighborhood’s development plan, and sound economic practices, in order to achieve a better environment in which residents, businesses and non-profit organizations can prosper.
