Here’s are two tips we learned at the Love Your Home event.  You can get up to $2500 in additional remodeling services through Healthy Home Incentive Program from Allegheny County Public Health Invest ( with a minimum of $5000 towards energy efficiency upgrades of $5,500 or more), and you can get get a home energy audit for only $150 (normally $400) from Duquesne Light.

Please join us on Thursday for the January HPCC monthly meeting. All Highland Park residents are invited to attend.

Randy and Karen Wood will be our guest presenters. They are proposing a bed & breakfast at 1156 Portland Street and would like to get community feedback on the project. If you are interested in learning more or have any questions or concerns – please come to the meeting.

HPCC November 2014 Newsletter

During the 2014 Highland Park House Tour many showcase homeowners, neighbors and tour guests voiced an interest to learn from each other and trusted experts how to best care for their homes inside and out. Based on this feedback and desire to connect with other residents the HPCC is sponsoring a FREE event to answer questions, connect residents with resources and each other, and educate our community on maintaining a home in our National Residential Historic District.

The event is planned for February 2015 with a goal of educating the community at large on home improvements, general home maintenance issues, navigating city processes such as permitting and innovative approaches to enhancing the value of your residence.

Please take a few minutes to provide us with input into the planning of this event by taking this short survey. Your input will be used to determine topics, content and speakers.
