University Hills and City-Wide Efforts

The Association was established on March 6, 1972 as the University Hills Homeowners Association, referred to as the UHHA. The UHHA was established as a civic organization of property owners (not an HOA) concerned with maintaining the single family residential footprint of the University Hills area and the preservation of Dottie Jordan Park and all its facilities as established when the community was formed.
