UFCA Committees are volunteer-driven committees tasked with addressing various quality of life issues in Francisville. We would love residents to join one or more committees!
Description: The Zoning Committee will meet 1-2 times per month to review development projects that require zoning variances. The Committee will sit down with developers, zoning attorneys, and architects to look at projects in depth and ask questions about the design, layout and impact on the Community. The Committee will provide developers with feedback prior to the Community meeting so that the project may be revised to be more appealing to Francisville residents. The developers will then present the project to the Community, at which time a vote will take place. UFCA prides itself on the transparency in this process.
Outreach & Inclusion Committee
Description: The Outreach & Inclusion Committee is responsible for getting more community voices heard to help guide UFCA’s initiatives/events/advocacy. This Committee is committed to increasing civic engagement in the neighborhood. We are currently looking for more community volunteers to keep this committee going.
Fundraising & Sponsorship Committee
Description: The purpose of the Fundraising and Sponsorship committee is to raise money for UFCA. We work with the Treasurer to establish budgets, ensure fiscal sustainability, and set financial goals. The committee collaborates with other Registered Community Organizations (RCO) to raise funds to improve the community. We implement fundraising drives, write grants, and solicit donations from businesses and organizations both within and beyond the borders of Francisville. We coordinate sponsorship opportunities for organizations, businesses, and individuals to ensure the success of various initiatives and projects.
Marketing & Events Committee
Description: The Marketing & Events Committee is the voice of UFCA. The volunteers on the committee maintain the website, social media accounts, (Facebook, Nextdoor, and Instagram), and general marketing and communications for UFCA. This committee works closely with the other committees to share neighborhood news, activities, events, and other important information, including UFCA’s January MLK Day of Service event, April Philly Clean Up, July Summer Clean up, and October Fall Clean up and Voter Registration event. We are currently looking for more community volunteers to keep this committee going.
Public Safety Committee
Description: The Public Safety Committee will address concerns on a variety of safety and health issues throughout the Francisville neighborhood. Concerns can range from repainting cross-walks or installing new ones, requesting new stop signs, repaving sidewalks, dog waste/dumping, crime prevention, enhancing street lighting, maintaining safe bike lanes, and maintaining a strong relationship with our local police and fire agencies. We are currently looking for more community volunteers to keep this committee going.
