Wed Jan 12, 2022: UCCA will host community meeting via Zoom; on the agenda: Net-Metering, Pure Water, Costa Verde, Redistricting, Standley Aquatic Center, Public Safety, and more


Re Costa Verde – At the March UCPG and UCCA community meetings, the UCPG planning group chair announced that Alexandria (the property owner and developer) intends to build out the property within the scope of the existing permits with a hotel, life-science office space, and retail. All existing tenants were expected to vacate the property by March 15. There is no decision yet on the retail mix of stores; that is yet to be determined. There will be some kind of grocery market but it will not be a large chain. It’s expected to be a smaller grocery neighborhood market that caters to pedestrians rather than to automobiles. The small area with McDonald’s and the gas station will remain as is.

University City Community Association (UCCA) will host its first meeting of the new year on on Wednesday, January 12, 2022, at 6 PM, using Zoom Meeting technology. The special topic will be proposed changes to roof-top solar panel energy buy-back rates at the California Public Utilities Commission; special guest is Cole Reed from State Senator Toni Atkins office. Other topics include updates on Pure Water, Costa Verde, and Redistricting. This is a public meeting and all are invited to participate.
