Don’t miss our October 1 UHCA Meeting for a timely discussion on the new Community Plans that affect University Heights.

University Heights straddles both the North Park and Uptown planning areas, and the Community Plans for both areas are being updated for the first time since 1988. These updates will set the course for a number of important areas in UH over the next 25 years.

Presentation Overview
Kristin Harms and Bll Ellig will present at the next University Heights Community Association meeting on October 1 about the City’s plans to increase density in UH. The meeting will start at 6:45 pm and be held in the Alice Birney Elementary School Auditorium at 4345 Campus Avenue. The presentation will include an overview of the City’s proposed land use plans for UH, compared to those recommended by the community at a workshop in May 2013. Visual representations will also be presented for each option, based on existing projects in Uptown and North Park.

A vote on the various options will be held at the meeting for submission to the City Planning Department. The Planning Department is requesting comments from the City’s community planning groups for Uptown and North Park by mid-December 2015, and from the community at-large by December 1, 2015.

For those who are unable to attend in-person, you may view the presentation online by registering here. A recording of the presentation will also be made available after the meeting. Registration is limited.
