A diverse, welcoming community of open hearts and minds since 1948
As you all know, UUCA is about to embark on an ambitious construction project that will see us upgrade our parking lot and replace our east wing. In order to keep you informed of our progress and to alert you to new traffic/parking patterns, please check back to this website for your weekly updates.
Many of you will notice as you arrive on the grounds that many trees have been marked with orange construction ribbon. As much as it pains us, these trees have been marked for removal in order to accommodate the work necessary to replace and expand our east wing and improve the parking lot. Although some of these trees are outside of the actual footprint of the work, they are so close that they cannot be saved. Throughout this process we have been very clear with all parties how highly we rate our trees and grounds and they have been very responsive to our concerns.
On a positive note, the Building Committee made the decision last week to sacrifice seven parking spaces in order to enlarge the islands around the three large trees that are being saved in the parking lot. This will give these trees the best chance to grow and flourish in the future.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Brian Smith, UUCA Chief Administrative Officer at email@example.com or 703-892-2565.
