The deadline to complete the HPCC Community Priority Survey is May 18th – share with us your thoughts on how the HPCC should invest its time, energy, and resources by completing the survey now!
On Saturday, April 20th there was a car accident at Stanton & N. Highland that damaged the Welcome to Highland Park sign.
I’m told by a number of people (including one in the accident) that the part of the sign with lettering was still intact, but that the poles that held it up were badly damaged.
By the time I went down to secure the sign, it was missing and only the broken poles remained.
If you know who has the sign or saw something that might help us reclaim it, please let me know.
No one will get in trouble if it is returned. I am going to assume they took it to keep it safe. The sign cost $3,000 to create and install and I would like to save a portion of that cost when replacing it – if possible.
Thanks for your help!
President, Highland Park Community Council
The Highland Park Community Council (HPCC) & Highland Park Community Development Corporation conducted a comprehensive neighborhood plan in 2004. HPCC is now taking time to reflect again on its vision and goals and we want to hear from neighborhood residents. The HPCC board’s preliminary discussions included reviewing the findings from the neighborhood plan, a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis, and internal polling. During our March 2019 community meeting, we presented our initial thoughts to attendees and asked for their input. We’ve taken what we’ve heard and have adapted it into this community survey. We hope that you’ll share with us your thoughts on how the HPCC should invest its time, energy, and resources so that our organization can more effectively engage residents and respond to the community’s interests and needs.
Thanks for your input!
