UCD Executive Director: Mr. Goldstein

Eric T. Goldstein, RLA, has been named executive director of University City District (UCD) by the Board of Directors Executive Committee. Mr. Goldstein succeeds Paul Steinke, who resigned in April. Mr. Steinke had been executive director of UCD since its inception in 1997.

Mr. Goldstein is a registered landscape architect who joined UCD in 1998. As director of Capital Programs and Planning, he has managed planning, design, construction and fundraising for improvements through University City neighborhoods.

"Eric has been a key leader and innovator at the UCD," said John A. Fry, UCD board chairman and acting executive director since May. "He has led our highly successful Capital programs and Planning group. We are highly confident that Eric's superior abilities and leadership will carry the UCD forward to even greater achievements and long-lasting contributions to the City and region."

As executive director, Mr. Goldstein will be primarily responsible for renewing the UCD's financial support for FY 2002-03 and beyond from the area's businesses, institutions and individuals. Unlike other Philadelphia area special services districts, UCD is not funded by mandatory property tax assessment but by voluntary contributions. The organization's present annual operating budget is $4.5 million, the majority of it funding its core programs of public safety and public space maintenance. Mr. Goldstein also serves as vice-president of The Woodlands Cemetery Company board, an organization that oversees the historic grounds and mansion in University City.
