Exciting News

I've lived in Highland West for a year now, and I'm excited to be a part of the Highland West Civic Association.  I'll admit that the first few meetings I attended were a bit discouraging, but the Association is more organized and everybody on the board seems to be ready to start a new era of community participation.
