Union Park’s committees are made up of dedicated and engaged volunteers from our community. They typically meet once a month and work on a broad array of issues including transportation, land development, parks improvements, community building and more. They provide a forum for community discussion, inform residents, and make recommendations to the Board and city decision-makers on community issues. Committee meetings are open to the public, and we welcome residents to attend – and to join. It's easy and rewarding to get involved in the community by serving on a committee. For more information, feel free to contact us, or just show up!
Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for a committee e-mailing list and recieve meeting agendas. (Each committee has their own e-mailing list.) All committee meetings are currently being held on Zoom.
If you are interested in joining the Committee, you’ll need to attend three consecutive meetings to become a voting member. (Please note that membership is limited to people over 17 years old who live--or own property or a business--within the Union Park boundaries and that voting privileges shall be revoked for any community member who misses three regular or special meetings over the course of a calendar year after becoming a voting member.)
