City Outreach to Eden Center Continues

The East End Small Area Plan has been under review by the community and involves the Vietnamese Eden Center. The redevelopment plan has been underway in Falls Church for over two years, but many of the Vietnamese family businesses there have not been engaged with the planning process due to language and other barriers. To change that, a group a young Vietnamese Americans are organizing to help the owners — often their parents — understand what may happen, and to help the county understand the needs of their community. The City of Falls Church has planned additional outreach.
