AALDEF is seeking volunteers to conduct land use surveys of Chinatown in Boston as part of a multi-city project focused on the health and sustainability of Chinatowns and surrounding communities.
Volunteers will survey all the addresses on specified streets – generally 3 to 4 city blocks. Using the survey, volunteers will collect information about the type of businesses, parking spaces, etc. on a particular street. The survey requires volunteers to look at buildings and record what exists; the survey does not require speaking with residents or storeowners. This process will take approximately 2 to 3 hours. You can choose when you want to conduct the survey, but a 45 minute training is required prior to conducting the survey.
If you are interested in volunteering, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org indicating:
