HPCC hosting meeting with HPCDC to discuss Bryant Street

The Highland Park Community Development Corporation (HPCDC) would like to update the neighborhood regarding the ongoing transformation of Bryant Street’s Commercial District. Longtime residents will appreciate the tremendous distance the street has come, but we all recognize that there is more work needed to complete the story.  The Highland Park Community Council is hosting this meeting together with the HPCDC. We look forward to the updates and welcome everyone’s feedback to help make the street even stronger.
