Please welcome Councilmember Todd Gloria to the May 1st UHCA meeting at 6:45 pm in the Birney Auditorium. Fresh from his stint as Interim Mayor (wonderful job, by the way), Councilmember Gloria is also the City Council President.
We appreciate what he has already done for University Heights, and he needs to hear from you now to better understand your concerns. So far, we’ve asked him to speak about topics that include the city’s FY15 budget, the Balboa Park Centennial, and UH issues such as planning groups, permits for dog waste stations, banners, and the Mid-City Rapid Bus Project. If you haven’t met him in person, don’t miss this opportunity. He’s a great speaker who’s articulate, knowledgeable, and just plain fun!
Don’t be shy about challenging Council President Gloria with your questions! If you have a specific topic you’d like him to address, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email community representative, Molly Chase.
Where is University Heights?
In 1983, boundaries for University Heights were established with the blessing of the Normal Heights Community Association, our two City Council members, and our two planning groups working with the University Heights Community Association (UHCA). Today, UH is split between two planning groups, Uptown Planners and the North Park Planning Committee (NPPC), which makes it more difficult for UH residents to assert control over what is happening in our own community. The UH Community Development Corporation (UHCDC), the NPPC, and residents to the east of Texas Street are working to change our boundaries and stop the effort voted on by UH residents to strengthen our voice by being within a single planning group, Uptown Planners. UHCA has provided important archival data so that everyone can learn about the long history behind this issue. Access the extensive documentation here.
