Neighborhoods in Action
Neighborhood Association Spotlight

Historic Highlands Neighborhood consists of approximately 715 homes. The Historic Highlands Neighborhood Association (HHNA) was formed in the early 1990's to facilitate and encourage neighbors to collectively work together to build a stronger community and provide a unified voice to City Hall, when needed. The HHNA consists of an all-volunteer board and a number of subcommittees focused on events/issues affecting the neighborhood.

Today you will find the Historic Highlands a vibrant neighborhood, with many community activities which reinforce and encourage a strong bond between neighbors. Annual events include the Historic Highlands Home Tour, Fourth of July Parade & BBQ, and the Labor Day Block Party. There are typically two neighborhood General Meetings held in the Spring and Fall each year to update the neighborhood on events and issues impacting the neighborhood area.

Safe Streets Now

If you have ever lived near a public nuisance, you know how distressing and disruptive its presence can be. Many communities are traumatized by public nuisances, such as Violence, Noise, Garbage, Vandalism, Prostitution, and Speeding Cars. Unfortunately, there are not enough police and city resources to pursue every public nuisance in every neighborhood.

However you and your neighbors can eradicate the nuisance by having the property declared a "public nuisance" and if necessary, by taking the owner of the property to Small Claims Court.
