Wed, Jul 13: UCCA Community Association meets at 6 PM via Zoom; releases preliminary agenda


Zoom Recording of UCCA’s July 13 2022 Meeting has expired.

UPDATE: At last night’s July UCPG meeting, Nancy Graham (City Planning Dept) and Andy Wiese (CPUS chair) announced that the July CPUS has been cancelled so the City Planning Dept staff can have more time to research the answers to questions that have been raised by the CPUS and by community members.

While Nancy Graham is not expected to attend tonight’s UCCA community meeting, Andy Wiese, Chris Nielsen (UCPG chair), and Katie Rodolico (CPUS committee member and UCCA rep) are expected to provide information and insight related to this change in the CPUS schedule.

The University City Community Association (UCCA) will meet on Wednesday, July 13, at 6 PM via Zoom. UCCA’s focus this month is community updates including public safety, planning group, community plan update, public libraries, and the garden club.

In addition, we will hear from community and legislative representatives including city council, county, state and federal representatives. UCCA meetings also provide a public forum, announcements, and UCCA committee reports. This is a public meeting and all are invited. 

Why does UCCA host public meetings?  It’s part of UCCA’s mission … to provide a forum (print newsletter, website, public meetings, community outreach, event support, etc) where the interests of residents may be expressed and contributions made to the protection of life and property in the community.
