Help Us Build a Better Union Park Community

Dear Neighbor,

Because of you and your generous support, we’re able to build a better Union Park community serving our many distinct neighborhoods. This year, we’ve been busy: 

Listening to you – by identifying neighborhood needs, being responsive to your input, and hosting proactive community forums every month on issues that matter to you.

Connecting you – by creating engaging community events like our annual festival in Merriam Park, supporting our locally-owned walkable businesses, and providing you access to local decision-makers.

Informing you – by updating you on issues that impact you—from crime prevention to the development of the future major league soccer stadium—through our E-newsletter, website, social media, and personal connections.

Advocating for you –  by promoting creative approaches to improving the walkability and livability, initiating zoning studies and smart approaches to development, addressing barriers to neighborhood safety, and tackling issues like college student impacts in our neighborhoods. 

Empowering you – by providing microgrants to neighbors to implement their own projects in our community, giving you a voice in local government before decisions are made, and enabling neighborhood leaders to take action through our board and committees.

We need your help to continue this work. The best way to help build a better community is by making a financial contribution today.

Thank you for helping make our neighborhoods great places to live, work, and play!
