University City Community Association (UCCA) will meet on Wednesday, January 11,  at 6 PM via Zoom. Zoom link is at the end of this post.

This is a community meeting and all are welcome. Wednesday night’s guest speakers include representatives of the University Community Library about the 50th anniversary celebration and announcements about Pure Water construction and the new Curbside Organic Green Recycling. In addition, we are expecting a representative of Doyle Elementary PTA and UCHS Centurion Foundation.

The community will hear updates related to upcoming community events, from the police department, planning group, community, and legislative representatives including city council, county, state and federal representatives. UCCA meetings also provide a public forum at which community interests may be expressed.

Why does UCCA host public meetings? It’s part of UCCA’s mission … to provide a forum where the interests of residents may be expressed and contributions made to the protection of life and property in the community. Our public forum includes the print newsletter, website and social media, community outreach, event support, and public meetings such as this Zoom meeting.
