Houston Community News >> Houston AABC Holds Monthly Meeting to Discuss Chinatown plans

9/1/2006 Houston - The Houston Asian American Business Council (AABC) held a members only meeting today to discuss future plans for Chinatown in Houston.

Projects to making Chinatown an attraction includes construction of a tall monument on Bellaire Blvd. between Beltway 8 and Gessner, planting flowers and shrubs in the median on Bellaire Blvd., and other landscape improvements that will change how the new Houston Chinatown will look.


Security is another big concern for the Houston AABC. With rising crime throughout Houston, more needs to be done to ensure safety in Chinatown. The Houston Asian American Business Council will begin  raising funds to increase their security budget. With the newly raised funds, AABC will hire more security guards and install cameras throughout Chinatown.
