What We Have Done and What We Are Doing

Current Project

2019 – From the public inputs collected, the community would like to persuading #18—Vietnam War Memorial– a war Memorial to honor and recognize the 2,709,918 Americans who served in Vietnam, including 303,704 wounded, 2338 missing in action, and more than 58,000 fallen. This war memorial also honors the 184,000-250,000 fallen South Vietnamese service members and 164,000 South Vietnamese civilian casualties.  We wish to honor and engrave the names of the men & women from the surrounding neighborhood such as City Heights, Talmadge, Kensington, North Park, etc.

Accomplishment

2018
Cultural Landmark Freeway Signs
Two cultural landmark signs on Interstate 15 freeway – the latest effort to brand the Little Saigon Cultural and Commercial District in City Heights as a destination. The signs were first introduced to the Assembly of State of California in Assembly Concurrent Resolution 173 on February 9, 2018, by Assembly Member Todd Gloria, in collaboration with Senator Toni Atkins, Assembly member Shirley Weber, and Assembly member Lorena Gonzalez-Fletcher. Costs for the cultural landmark signs were covered by the Little Saigon Foundation, who petitioned Little Saigon District businesses and donated funds raised from our annual SD Lunar New Year Festival.

Vietnamese Heritage Flag Pole
The Vietnamese heritage flag has long been a symbol of resilience, freedom, nationalism, and democracy for the vast majority of Vietnamese Americans in San Diego. The flag pole will be 65 feet tall and can be viewed as far as 2 miles away. Although this is still underway, significant progress has been made such as the completion of the engineering, planning, and design of the Little Saigon Heritage Flag Pole, as well as the application process of the use permit.
