Consider Walking With Flow of Traffic to Avoid Close Interaction
With fewer options for recreation, more people are taking walks around the neighborhood. In an effort to promote safe distancing, please consider walking in the same direction as traffic when on University Hills sidewalks. By walking with the flow of traffic, we minimize pedestrian passing on sidewalks that is too close for social distancing. Your neighbors will thank you!
Upcoming Virtual Classes & Events:
June 30: Deadline for submissions for The Adventure of Six Biographies and Uhills Photo Contest
July 19: CSD Book Club, Kindred by Octavia Butler ( details to come )
