We are looking for nominations from the community to honor those who serve University Heights residents. To nominate a mail carrier or delivery person or trash collector or barrista or any other person serving the UH community who always goes the extra mile, please contact Nan MacGraw by Saturday, November 28. Nominees will be honored at our December meeting.
We will also be featuring The Giving Tree, to which we encourage you to contribute. The Giving Tree was created to help the children and families of our local Alice Birney Elementary School during the holiday season. The Giving Tree is filled with ornaments ranging from $5-$25 and listing stores such as Target, Toys-R-Us, Ralphs and Trader Joe’s — stores that will allow a family to buy gifts and/or necessities for the holidays. Please purchase a gift card (or two or three) for a convenient chain store in any amount the next time you find yourself out shopping, and bring the gift cards to the December UHCA meeting.
Take Back The Point
Over the past two years, there has been a marked increase in observed and reported criminal activities involving drug usage and dealing, alcohol, assault, and prostitution in UH Zone 1. Indeed, the relative quiet, isolation, and beautiful vistas afforded by Zone 1’s location abutting canyons on virtually all sides has become a double-edged sword. Much of the activity is centered on The Point and the streets that lead to The Point. The residents surrounding The Point have put together a proposal, which would ban alcohol and restrict usage of The Point during certain hours. Learn more by downloading the full proposal. We also encourage residents to complete the short survey at the end of the proposal to provide your input.
