State of the City 2017
Submitted By City of Union City
Mayor Carol Dutra-Vernaci and City Manager Tony Acosta delivered their State of the City Address Tuesday, October 24 at the Masonic Home. It has certainly been a busy year! They covered an array of milestone projects that are completed or underway, including:
The City became a Compassionate City earlier this year to reinforce to our residents that we are tolerant and accepting of all people, regardless of gender, race, national origin or immigration status.
Union City launched a new city website. The goal was to move away from the traditional look, feel and use of a bureaucratic website and instead, create something that is fresh, modern, and customer-focused.
1.2 million square feet of office space is being built in the Station District, which is a continuing part of the CityÕs vision to create a walkable, live/work community at BART.
Due to the passage of Prop 64 last year, the City Council is exploring local regulations on cannabis.
The City has enacted rent and tenant protections for local renters this year, including the establishment of a rent review/mediation process.
