OCA and Long-Range Planning Division Tower Tomorrow Partnership

OCA and Long-Range

One of our city’s most vibrant and inclusive corridors is undergoing a revision of its zoning plans and the community at-large is invited to participate!

The Office of Community Affairs (OCA) is teaming up with the Long-Range Planning division to outreach to our diverse Fresno communities encouraging their involvement in the Tower District Specific Plan Update. The update will revise the original plan established 30 years ago and will serve as a guide to this iconic neighborhood’s future.

Community vision for the Tower District welcome
“We are encouraging Tower District residents, visitors, business owners and enthusiasts to join us by sharing your vision for this neighborhood’s next 30 years. Having broad participation from community members who live, work, and play in the Tower will enrich the plan for decades to come,” shared Casey Lauderdale, Long Range Planning Division supervising planner and Tower Tomorrow project leader.

The OCA was invited to partner with the Tower Tomorrow project to encourage participation from all community members including our city’s Asian Pacific Islander, BIPOC, Indian, Immigrant and Latino communities. As part of the project, the OCA recorded messages in English, Spanish, Hmong and Punjabi welcoming resident engagement. These video-recorded messages featured on the Tower Tomorrow project website share different ways residents can participate in the vision for the district’s future.

“The Tower District has always been a welcoming place for all visitors. As the OCA, we are excited to invite all city residents to join in and share what they envision for the Tower District today and for years to come,” shared Harjinder Saini, OCA’s Indian Community liaison.
