Nearly 200 Chinese-Americans who begged the Phoenix City Council to step in and preserve the Chinese Cultural Center on Tuesday didn’t get the “yes” they were hoping for — but they didn’t get a “no,” either.

Instead, the council voted 8-0, with Councilman Daniel Valenzuela absent, to allow residents to commission a survey analyzing the historical significance of the 20-year-old property on 44th Street near Loop 202.

The results of the study could help or hinder the case the community has tried to make in favor of a historic-preservation designation for the property after it changed hands in June.
