Residents of Union Hill have a particular interest in the proposed development, given our proximity. We know that Community Development, City Council and others will look to our civic association for input on this project, therefore, it is important that we gather all the facts and deliberate as a community. To that end, please attend this meeting and come prepared with questions.
