UCMS was first created in 1996, when a group of passionate neighborhood residents, merchants, and civic leaders banded together to plan and manage the revitalization of the once vibrant Upham's Corner business and residential district. With a volunteer Board of Directors and a small but committed staff, UCMS set out to create new permanent jobs, an optimal mix of retail businesses, and shopping opportunities that fit the needs of residents.
