Historic Highlands Neighborhood consist 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
effecting 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 2
neighborhood General Meetings held in the Spring and Fall each year to update the
neighborhood on events and issues impacting the neighborhood area.
The reality is that our neighborhood is enriched by many events and involvements, e.g.
block parties, welcoming committees, crime watch, and even just introducing yourself.
Whenever we can grow and interact as neighbors, our neighborhood benefits. The
HHNA is continually looking to help create more opportunities for neighbors to come
together. If you would like to volunteer for any of our committees or have ideas to
further enrich our neighborhood, please contact any of the HHNA Board Members.
Annual Historic Highlands Home Tour:
Neighbors frequently ask how we select the houses for the tour. While not scientific,
we look for houses that meet certain criteria. We look for houses that have some
architectural significance. Either original features that have been preserved, or houses
that have been restored or remodeled to enhance the period architecture.
Another thing we look for are homes that are located within a close walking distance.
This allows us to highlight a portion of the neighborhood. In the past we have
highlighted Topeka, Catalina, and Elizabeth Streets. We also have highlighted areas,
such as the Dane Tract or the Lexington Heights Development.
Do you think your house would meet those criteria? We would love to consider it.
Email Co-Chairs Ginger Loesch at email@example.com or Liz Berner at
firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can talk to you about the possibility of having your
house on tour.
The home tour is one of the most popular events sponsored by the neighborhood
association. It provides us with the opportunity to share what a wonderful
neighborhood we have with the whole community. We want all of our neighbors to
know that anyone is welcomed to join the committee. We always need new members
who are willing to lend a hand or who are interested in taking a specific position. If you
are interested in volunteering, please Email Chairpersons Ginger Loesch or Liz Berner.
We look forward to hearing from you.
