The Uptown Whittier Improvement Association (UWIA) was created in the Fall of 2017 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation.

Voted on and passed by an overwhelming majority of Uptown Whittier property owners, the UWIA is a community benefit district ran primarily by a board of property owners and business owners. The board is responsible for making decisions in the areas of public safety, beautification, economic development, maintenance and promotions—providing residents and visitors with a clean and safe community to enjoy.

The UWIA plans to elevate and revitalize the Uptown Whittier district by keeping its sidewalks clean, establishing a cohesive identity, maintaining a safe neighborhood, beautifying the community and promoting Uptown Whittier as a top regional destination.

UWIA Mission Statement

The mission of the UWIA is to improve the district through various service areas including Sidewalk Operations, District Identity and Land Use.
