There’s a lot going on in University City during April. Many meetings and deadlines are associated with the Community Plan Update (see⚠️ below). UCCA is keeping you informed through our websites, e-mail blasts, newsletter and by hosting public meetings. We share information so that you can stay informed and connect with neighbors, friends, and public officials as we all strive to keep University City more than just a neighborhood.
