university community association
The University Community Association (UCA) is the oldest civic organization in the University District and one of the oldest in the City of Columbus. It is a voluntary membership organization that meets quarterly. Most of the business is transacted by an executive committee which meets monthly on the second Wednesday at the Northwood-High Building, Room 200. Meetings are open to the public.
Over the past 30 years, the UCA has sponsored many projects such as getting improved street lighting for the east of campus area, developing Tuttle Park with trails and a swimming pool in the area. The UCA sponsors a quarterly breakfast where neighbors can socialize and get to know about the latest initiatives in the area. It also holds the annual Ice Cream Social in August where it recognizes a community individual who has done significant work to improve the University District with giving of the Oscar Award. A quarterly newsletter is also mailed out to area residents.
