Business leaders and community members in Chinatown plan to meet Monday evening to talk about a new era in the Year of the Monkey.

The Chinatown District Business Revitalization Zone and the Calgary Chinese Merchants Association will be discussing growth, development and revitalization interests in the neighbourhood.

They will also focus on the protection of Asian culture and preserving Calgary’s Chinese heritage.

One of the topics sure to be of big importance: a proposed 30 storey development residents are concerned will visually split up the cultural fabric of the area.

Council has put off a decision on that project until April.

The Year of the Monkey Banquet happens at the Regency Palace Restaurant at 6 p.m.
