From UCCA president Diane Ahern:

Hello University City, I hope you are doing well. In this newsletter, we include [almost] everything you should know about the month of June courtesy of Almanac.com and UCCA and our many community contributors.

From the Almanac, did you know that June is the month to celebrate World Environment Day; Flag Day; Father’s Day; Juneteenth; the Summer Solstice; and Pride Month? June is also the month to celebrate Say Something Nice Day; National Yo-Yo Day; Upsy Daisy Day; Go Skateboarding Day; and Asteroid Day. So let’s get outside, fly the flag, enjoy the longest daylight of the year, and say something nice.

In University City, June is also Community Plan Update Discussion Draft month during which I am urging everyone in our University City community to review and provide feedback on the first draft of the Community Plan Update.

If you haven’t had a chance to review the Discussion Draft and submit your feedback, there’s still time (until the end of June) and three community meetings in June to help inform your thinking. June meeting and event details are available at: universitycitynews.org/UCCA/June2023SaveTheDate

  • The Planning Group (UCPG) meets on Tuesday, June 13 with both an in-person and Zoom option*
  • The Community Association (UCCA) meets on Wednesday, June 14 by Zoom*
  • The Community Plan Update Subcommittee (CPUS) will meet for an extended time on Tuesday, June 20, at the Nobel Recreation Center with both an in-person and Facebook live stream option*

* To help you prepare for the June meetings, we have included May meeting summaries and the details of the upcoming June meetings in the pages of this June print newsletter and on UCCA’s UniversityCityNews.org website. June meeting and event details are available at: universitycitynews.org/UCCA/June2023SaveTheDate

Please submit your suggestions on the Plan Update Discussion Draft by emailing your comments to planuniversity@sandiego.gov. Comments and suggestions will be accepted on the first draft until June 30, 2023, with additional opportunities for feedback to come. Details at: https://www.planuniversity.org/

June is also the month that the Fire Department is preparing for wildfire by increasing training and outreach to remind us to prepare ourselves, our families, and our homes in case of fire in our area. We are also looking forward to July summer events such as Summer Movies, 4th of July UC Celebration and the Summer Concerts.

Have you seen them? UCHS student leaders have been chosen by school staff to represent University City and the High School on the San Diego County Fair banners which are now displayed on Governor and on Genesee.

Congratulations to the UC Library on Governor for celebrating its first 50 years and to EdUCate! for another successful Taste of the Triangle and for being named the Nonprofit of the Year by State Senator Brian Jones.

If you have garbage collection by City crews from Environmental Services with Monday pickup, watch for the notice in the US Mail about the new kitchen pail and organic waste recycling.

June could be known as construction season in University City as Pure Water crews are hard at work on Genesee and on Executive Drive as well as Towne Centre Drive and (coming soon) on La Jolla Village Drive. Sarah Bowles and the Pure Water team will provide a construction update at the June UCCA meeting.

Our University City News print newsletter is unique. It is the only source of hyperlocal news in University City. You’ll find news and features here that you won’t find anywhere else. We thank all the UCCA members, contributors, and newsletter advertisers who help to keep us in print.

I’m confident that you, our readers, value the University City News as much as I do. If you haven’t had a chance to join UCCA for 2023, now is the time. We need your support and donations to help keep our newsletter in print.

Have a great June; I hope to see you out and about in University City this month. We have a lot to talk about. Thank you so much for helping to keep University City more than just a neighborhood.
