Enjoying a spring day in Union Square park
About the Union Square Association
         Contributed by Betsy Nix
The Union Square Association is an active membership organization dedicated to making Union Square a better place to live and to getting the word out about our great neighborhood.

Each year the Association organizes the Christmas Cookie Tour, makes arrangements for the Progressive Dinner, schedules neighborhood clean-ups, sells beverages at the SoWeBo Festival, and holds block meetings. In 2002 we secured a $5,000 grant for Union Square Park. Through this grant we have worked with the Neighborhood Design Center to develop a planting plan, mulched existing trees and planned several beautification days in the spring.

Open to the public, general meetings are held at the Neighborhood Design Center (1401 Hollins Street), and are scheduled at 7:00 PM on the first Wednesday of every month. All interested parties are welcome to attend.

The annual dues for Association membership (including voting privileges) are $5.00. Members are encouraged to serve on one of our five standing committees: Housing, Public Relations, Safety, Membership, or Park Beautification. For members unable to join a committee, there are many opportunities to contribute by working with other members on some of the many special events throughout each year. For more information, attend a general meeting, contact an Association officer or board member, or leave a message on this web site’s discussion board.
