An #UptownforAll!

We don’t believe in just rubber-stamping plans or projects as proposed.

We represent your concerns as residents and local business owners.

We pay attention to details in the present and history from the past to avoid mistakes affecting our future.

We counter dogmatism with pragmatism about change, growth, housing, parking, parks, and transportation.

As individuals, we may not always agree on every issue. However, we always listen and work for developments and projects that are right for our neighborhoods. Please consider joining us!
