Many Union City residents long for the "good old days" before the economic impact of our plant closing era. Now a group of Union City residents have formed a not-for-profit organization that is actively working on beautification of residential areas.
The purpose is renovating old houses, one house at a time. The long-term aim is providing more housing in town for teachers, first responders and military. The workforce is VOLUNTEER citizens who enjoy the activity, enjoy the fellowship, and share an interest in beautifying our town. You are welcome to join the cause.
As of summer 2020, program had just started, finishing its first home at Division and Columbia. But more homes are being lined up, volunteer momentum is building. And the potential is becoming real.
There's a role for those experienced in the building trade, those who would like to learn, and those who are willing to help in a variety of ways. And financial support or materials and supplies are a huge help!

The photo shows an unexpected benefit in action -- a group of Union City young people who spent one of the hottest days of the summer working on internal demolition at our ROC house at 502 N. Columbia. They had an opportunity to interact directly with police chief Cobie Wells while proving they were hard-workers who understand the value of contributing to the community. A real win-win-win and an example of what community is all about.
