LoveYourHomeEventThe Highland Park Community Council (HPCC) is planning our first homeowner resource fair on Saturday, February 21, 2015 to help educate our community at large on home improvements, general home maintenance, navigating city processes such as permitting and innovative approaches to enhancing the value of one’s residence.

This event is FREE to all Highland Park residents!

The event will be held at Union Project, 801 N. Negley Ave., from 10am – 1pm. It will include a traditional resource fair in the Great Room with table stations manned by experts that guests can visit during the entire event and special breakout sessions in the Atrium with selected speaker panels for a more in-depth look at certain topics such as return on investment (ROI) as it relates to home improvements.

HPCC eNewsletter September 2014

You can take the HP Off Leash Exercise Area Survey online – your input is appreciated. Highland Park residents received a print version of the HPCC newsletter this month which has more information on the off leash area. The recommended location is the Forestry Field on Stanton Ave, and the Department of Public Works will make a final decision.

HPCC Newsletter April 2014

At the March 20th meeting of the HPCC, three leash-free dog areas were proposed including:

1) Elgin St./King Estate
2) Farm House Ball Field
3) Forestry Field

The decision making process will include a second community meeting on April 17th. Please see the HPCC Highland Park Dog Park Presentation_v2 for more details.

I regret to inform everyone that we are cancelling the February HPCC meeting tomorrow night at Union Project.

It seems as though Union Project is overbooked for the evening and St. Andrew’s is still under construction so we find ourselves without a meeting place for the moment.

We will resume meeting regularly on Thursday, March 20th. The Parks Conservancy will be on hand to help us review three (3) potential leash free dog run areas in the park and to review best practices for dog parks currently in use across the country.

All dog owners are urged to attend the March meeting to share your thoughts on each of the locations under consideration. Community feedback is encouraged and important to the process. I hope to see you there!
