For some time, the Highland City Council has been looking into the possibility of selling some park land and using the proceeds to begin to develop the park next to Mountain Ridge Junior High School.
On January 29, the Planning Commission decided to postpone their decision on the Conditional Use Permit for the Park until a sound study and traffic study could be completed. City Council will not consider the Conditional Use Permit until Planning Commission has voted on it. Staff is currently working to hire firms to complete those studies. When the studies are complete, the Planning Commission will reconsider the Conditional Use Permit.
