THE CITY OF HIGHLAND MISSION AND VALUES
Highland is dedicated to the betterment of the individual, the family, the neighborhood and the
community. The City Council and the staff of the City of Highland are dedicated to providing
the quality of public facilities and services that
its citizens are willing to fund and will do so as
efficiently as possible.
This Mission is established to reflect the following beliefs which represent the predominant
beliefs of the community. They express what matters most in the conduct of public affairs
affecting the citizenry of Highland.
Everyone in the community has rights and is responsible for their own actions.
Volunteer service is a valued community resource.
Public resources and finances are to be stewarded carefully and conservatively-we live within
our means and will not place huge debts on future generations.
Creative solutions are the norm, not the exception.
Neighborhood stability and a sense of ownership are to be encouraged and strengthened.
The community has a vision of the future and how it will get there.
Families are the basic unit of society and the essence of what makes our community. All values
should be encouraged at this family level.
Have you ever wanted to give back to your community by volunteering? Here are a few of the several organizations to consider:
Blood Drive: Highland sponsors a blood drive once every two months at the Highland Police Station. Volunteers can help by processing donors, setting up tables and chairs and offering refreshments in the canteen.
Highland Improvement Team: The Highland Improvement Team (HIT) meets once a month, typically the third Saturday of each month, with projects such as property cleanup for disabled citizens and seniors, graffiti abatement, weed abatement and City events.
