District 15 Plan Steering Committee Applications are now being accepted

We are taking applications for the District 15 Plan Steering Committee.  Our goal in updating the existing District 15 plan is to make sure it fits with the City’s Comprehensive plan, reflects the aspirations and visions of our neighborhood and helps frame the objectives and strategies to guide future growth and development in the Highland Park neighborhood.

We anticipate the Steering Committee will meet approximately four times, with subcommittees likely meeting three to four times.  Additionally, the expectation is that Steering Committee members will volunteer at two community events. We anticipate the meetings and events will take place over the course of 2017.  Click here for more information about the District Plan and to submit an application.

Application deadline is February 10th.

EAB Removal in Highland

EAB REMOVAL BEGINNING IN HIGHLAND PARK

The removal of EAB from the Highland National Golf Course began on Monday, January 9th. The removal of Emerald Ash on the golf courses is a result of the increase in funding that was allocated to Parks. Highland National begins today with Como Golf starting after the ski programs ends.

Two bids awarded;
• Tree Trust – Como Golf 175 trees
• YTS Company- Highland National / Highland 9 309 trees.
Timeline
• 1-2 days for cutting of the trees at the 18 hole Highland National course.
• 3-4 days for staging the trees in designated areas to be chipped and processed.
• January 17 to start the chipping and grinding process.
• Tentative start date of January 23 for the Highland 9 hole.

In an effort to minimize any damage to the golf turf, the YTS company has met with golf staff and has identified and packed all appropriate access points and the routes to use for the removal.
