UFCA Committees are volunteer-driven committees tasked with addressing various quality of life issues in Francisville. Currently we need neighbor participation to continue to have these committees.
Public Safety Committee addresses concerns on a variety of safety and health issues throughout the Francisville neighborhood. Concerns can range from repainting cross-walks or installing new ones, requesting new stop signs, repaving sidewalks, dog waste/dumping, crime prevention, enhancing street lighting, maintaining safe bike lanes, and maintaining a strong relationship with our local police and fire agencies. Currently we just have Officer O'Shea join our community meetings to address concerns. If you have interest in restarting this as an official committee please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fundraising & Sponsorship Fundraising is an essential component of the Civic Association to cover various operating expenses (website, insurance, facility fees, etc) as well as contribute to programming that will benefit the community as a whole.
Outreach & Inclusion The Outreach & Inclusion Committee is responsible for getting more community voices heard to help guide UFCA’s initiatives/events/advocacy. This Committee is committed to increasing civic engagement in the neighborhood, and making sure no voices are left out.
Communications & Events Committee is responsible for being the voice of UFCA. The committee maintains the website, social media presence (Facebook, Nextdoor), e-newsletter, and general marketing for UFCA. More broadly, this Committee will promote neighborhood news, activities, and UFCA’s monthly meetings, as well as assisting other committees with planning and promoting events such as the holiday social.
Zoning Committee meets 1-2 times per month to review development projects that require zoning variances. The Committee will sit down with developers, zoning attorneys, and architects to look at projects in depth and ask questions about the design, layout and impact on the Community. The Committee will provide developers with feedback prior to the Community meeting so that the project may be revised to be more appealing to Francisville residents. The developers will then present the project to the Community, at which time a vote will take place.
