About Cultural Districts

We identify areas throughout the city that are rich in cultural identity as Cultural Districts.

These culturally-rich areas have a high number of:

  • Black, Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC)
  • People of Color immigrants

These communities have historically experienced the negative effects of racially discriminatory actions and policies. 

Labeling areas as Cultural Districts is one thing we're doing to strengthen:

  • Commercial corridors
  • Neighborhoods
  • Economic activity
  • Public transit
  • Affordable housing
  • Community ownership
  • Supporting other cultural assets and civic benefits
