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!
