Community Plan (2004)

The community planning process for Highland Park, and for our neighbors in surrounding communities, is intended to enable a diverse set of residents to identify strengths, weaknesses and opportunities in our community. These issue areas include: businesses, services, housing, public safety, recreation and education. Through this process, we can collaborate with government, nonprofit organizations and other entities to shape well-designed and creative ideas that can be translated into initiatives that affect all of us in our daily lives.



Highland Park history goes back to the late 18th century when the area was settled by Alexander Negley and his family. In 1995 & 1996 Mike Staresinic and Clarke Thomas enlisted the help of several others to produce an initial history of the Highland Park Community Club. It exists here as they wrote it. As of late 2007, the Highland Park neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Highland Park Residential Historic District.
