Union Park District Council (UPDC) is governed by a volunteer board. Our Board of Directors is comprised of 21 community volunteers: 11 are elected to positions based on geography or business representation, and six are appointed from institutions and organizations. The community votes for elected members at our annual fall meeting to serve staggered two-year terms, so that approximately half of the seats become available each year. Mid-term appointments can also be made to open seats.
Anyone who is 18 or older and lives, owns property, or is the owner or designated representative of a business within the UPDC boundaries can serve on our board. It's a great way to give back to the community and to ensure that Union Park continues to be a vibrant, engaging, diverse place to live. Contact us if you’re interested in applying.
Meetings of the Union Park board are open to the public. Community members are encouraged to attend! The board meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. at various locations. We usually start with a voice from our community, hear reports from our committees, discuss issues of interest to residents, and take actions important to the successful operation of our organization. You can review recent board meeting agendas here. And recent board meeting minutes can be found here after being approved by the board.
Our board members
The Union Park District Council community is divided into 11 grid sections, with a board member elected to represent each section. We also have one elected nonprofit representative, one elected business representatives, two at-large representatives, and six members appointed by institutions and legacy neighborhood organizations.
