Our Community through the years

May 15, 2017

Many of our former city leaders have memories of University Park that date back to the 1930s.  So that we could record their stories for current and future residents to enjoy, City staff recently sat down with six former mayors to get their thoughts on our neighborhoods then and now, our city traditions, community partners and institutions and our leadership and governance.  Current Mayor Olin Lane also participated in the storytelling.

University Park - Our Community through the years is a 17-minute montage that is divided into five segments.
