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.
