From the Union Hill Civic Association:

With your help, in recent months our momentum has grown for making the EPA-sponsored community design concept a reality.

Let’s look forward to the day we can walk, bike, drive, and shop safely along our “Main Street”!

  • Cynthia Newbille, our City Council Representative, is committed to a better Jefferson Avenue, and is leading new efforts to secure funding. Be sure to thank Ms. Newbille if you see her!
  • The Church Hill Association voted in support of our vision, and CHA representatives have joined the Union Hill Civic Association in advocating for the improvements.
  • Department of Public Works staff intend to propose funding for the project, but are unsure whether this will be approved.
  • Department of Public Utilities staff have indicated their support for a greener and safer Jefferson Avenue, and intend to seek grant funding for a storm-water retention project, similar to a rain garden, near Jefferson Park


Recently CHPN attended a meeting with the Jefferson Avenue Task Force and Cynthia Newbille. It was a great meeting of the minds and a reminder that there’s still a fair amount of work to be done. We will be writing a series of articles based on all the players and keeping you up-to-date.
