University City Community Association (UCCA) will meet on Wednesday, September 14 at 6 PM via Zoom. This meeting will be recorded. UCCA’s focus this month is community updates including a presentation at 6:15 PM about the Pure Water Pipelines and Tunnels construction in University City and a presentation at 6:30 PM about Organic Waste Recycling; public safety, planning group reform, community plan update timeline, EdUCate!, Spreckels Elementary, the Garden Club, and the Rotary Club.

In addition, we will have updates 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 (including public meetings, print newsletter, website, social media, 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.
