Enhancing the Quality of Life for Families

UCC members and guests

This spring, UCC held two events that focused on families. At the April 13th, 2010 meeting, UCC members and other community residents met with members of the Woodlawn Community Development Corporation, the management company of the CHA housing in the neighborhood. Denise Harris, the Senior Property Manager, addressed some of their public safety concerns. To assist with this, CHA is in the midst of installing a number of high tech cameras to enhance the security of a number of their sites.
