The Community Relations Committee is comprised of nine members, who typically meet the third Thursday of every month at the Municipal Services Center (unless moved to virtual), to continue to support Upper Arlington as a welcoming community and to promote understanding, mutual respect and a sense of belonging among all residents to affirm the value of each individual and foster a continued culture of shared community. The President of City Council appoints members to the Community Relations Committee and Council Members confirm.

Submissions to our Community Calendar
As a service to the community, the City hosts an online Community Calendar. We invite you to submit details of upcoming special events that are open to and promote government interests of the community at-large, as determined by the City of Upper Arlington.
To submit a calendar listing, please use this online form. Submissions should include a photograph (no posters or logos) with a exact size of 1920 pixels wide x 1275 pixels high. We recommend that you submit items at least three months in advance, since we may include some community events in the City’s print and e-newsletters as space allows.
The City will not post routine items such as programs, club meetings or classes. The inclusion of a special event does not represent an endorsement from the City. The City reserves complete control of any event postings on the Community Calendar and has final approval authority over them. Community Calendar postings are not intended to, and do not, create a public or designated forum for private speech of any kind. The City reserves its right to refuse a submission
