2007

About 150 people participated in a "Sweet 16" party for the Super Playground on 2007-06-09.  The event was sponsored by the Highland Park Community Council and state Senator Jim Ferlo and included an appearance by Mayor Luke Ravenstalhl and original Super Playground project leaders Marsha Dugan and Roseanne Levine.  The event also featured a new dedication sign.  Children attending the event were invited to add tiles to part of a new mosaic for the wall near the top of One Wild Place (formerly The Hill Road).

Site restored from backups

The Highland Park web site was recently restored from backups so recent content was lost.

We are working to get the content updated--unfortunately some old information for topics such as the upcoming Yard Sale and Summer Day Camp may be all that's available on the site before the restoration is complete.

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.
