You will find the AGM Minutes posted here on our website (www.highlandparknews.ca) under AGM 2016.

 

There has been interest on the Highland Park Community Facebook page (called Highland Park) about getting interested people together to work on upgrading our park structures. Also to look at our current area rate and consider raising it to bring it in line with other communities in the area so we could consider projects like park upgrades, etc. See https://halifax.ca/taxes/TaxBill/arearates.php

 

If you would like to help form a work group for either or both of these potential projects, please email us at [email protected]

 

Thanks, hope to see you soon!
