Committees

Union Park has four standing committees:

Land Use and Economic Development (CLUED)

Neighborhood Involvement

Environment and Parks

Transportation

Union Park's committees are made up of dedicated and engaged volunteers from our community. They meet once a month and work on 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!

This committee makes recommendations and informs residents on residential, commercial and transit development. We review variance applications and construction site plans, make recommendations on problem properties, support transit-oriented land use, and work with government officials to positively impact land use decisions.
