Chinatown native, Debbie Liu grew up steeped in the area’s cultural amenities. While at the Coalition for a Better Chinese-American Community (CBCAC), she used Urban Planning tools to empower her community. Recently, she joined the Metropolitan Planning Council.
A proponent of #walkability, better bus service & public schools, Debbie was part of CMAP’s Chinatown Vision Plan. She also guided a recent city grant that audited Chinatown intersections’ walkability. She also plans pop-up placemaking installations, works with area youth & is involved with a CMAP parking study.
