University City News: the 2019 November newsletter is now online!

From UCCA President Barry Bernstein: The November print newsletter is now available online and at the Library and Recreation Center (both on Governor Drive) and will be delivered to area homes and libraries and businesses beginning November 1. Download the PDF version at

It’s time to JOIN UCCA and to look forward to the beauty of the Fall season in San Diego. I suppose for some that just means changing the AC to heat rather than cool or watching some World Series games, (sans the SD Padres).

We had our Halloween candy and now, after changing our clocks, and soon after Veteran’s Day, start thinking about some new side dishes for the Thanksgiving crowd. In my home it also means preparing for the annual Balderdash competition.

It’s also time to carefully remove the 2020 UCCA membership form from this newsletter and to decide on you membership category for this coming year. JOIN UCCA and support all the good things being done in our community to support one another.

Our front page article reflects how UCCA does just that. Our election of officers, (see candidate’s information below), will take place at our November 13 meeting. Please come to vote, you can JOIN UCCA that evening, and also hear mayoral candidate, Barbara Bry speak.

I do think it’s worth mentioning that home sales prices in UC recently have reached heights I never thought to be possible…we live in a very special community, and UCCA is so very proud to be an integral part of maintaining and improving the quality of life for our residents.

We have challenges ahead: safety/noise out of Miramar, MCAS, Pure Water raw sewage pipelines, Fire/evacuation planning, the impact of UCSD’s growth on our traffic circulation and housing, and of course what the pros and cons of the trolley may mean for our community. These are issues that UCCA and the Community Plan Update Committee will be addressing in 2020 and beyond, but together we can find reasonable solutions. UCCA does represent you, but we need your support. JOIN UCCA and be part of the process to resolve these challenges. Have a wonderful month of November…see you at our UCCA meeting on the 13th.

Join UCCA through PayPal at When you fill out your 2020 UCCA membership form, please do think about volunteering by joining one of our committees, and don’t hesitate to include any personal comments as to how we can do even a better job. Remember, University City is “more than just a neighborhood”.
