Read our 2020 Uptown Year-in-Review to learn how we supported our neighborhood through an unprecedented year.

Dear neighbors, visitors, and partners,

2020 was a year unlike any other. Uptown United and the Uptown Chamber of Commerce spent much of the year working closely with our local businesses and organizations to face the challenges presented by COVID-19. We increased our communications to keep our community informed on new restrictions, critical funding opportunities, and unique programs to assist neighborhood businesses. Our team became a one-stop-shop for information, guidance, resources, and hands-on support. We had to reimagine the in-person events we typically host. What did we learn from last year? That we’re better together: strong relationships keep communities strong.
