Message from the
Chairman of the Board

Anthony Scutari
Chairman of the Board

The Union County Improvement Authority (UCIA) is a dynamic, innovative agency providing invaluable services to the residents of Union County, and I feel truly privileged to serve as its Chairman.

Our agency plays an integral role in the economic life of Union County by helping to finance and build important public projects, creating jobs and revitalizing our economy. None of our agency’s efforts would be possible, however, without the ongoing support we receive from the Board of Chosen Freeholders.

In recent years the UCIA has undertaken a wide array of successful public works initiatives, from financing and building two fire stations, a new library and the Raymond Wood Bauer Promenade walkway in Linden, to the new Union County Prosecutor’s Office Child Advocacy Center and a major expansion of the Union County Community College campus, both in Elizabeth.

At present, the UCIA has two additional Union County Community College expansions projects on the boards for its campuses in Plainfield and Cranford, and a new Union County Family Courthouse under construction. The UCIA helps to save taxpayer money through our ability to offer low-cost financing rates, as well as our ability to offer construction management services.

As someone who has deep roots in Union County, I am proud of our work and our record of accomplishment. We have done much to help jumpstart new development throughout Union County, and we are committed to continuing this role so that Union County may continue to grow and prosper.

Our hard-working staff is here to help you and I invite you to contact us for more information on our services and to find out how we can help make Union County a better place in which to live, raise a family and operate a business.
