On December 3, 2019, City Council approved the Open Space Disposal and Removal of Neighborhood Trails in the Wimbleton Subdivision. On December 10, 2019, citizens of Highland City filed a referendum application challenging that law and ordered that it be referred to the voters for their approval at a future municipal election. In order for the law to be placed on the ballot, sponsors were required to collect 1,183 valid signatures. The sponsors collected more than the required number of signatures and as such the item will be placed on the 2021 Municipal Election ballot. Prior to the election, the City will produce a Voter Information Pamphlet with more information that will be distributed to all registered voters.
