Its purpose is to facilitate communication between Highlands residents and the Board of Aldermen and other city organs. It also serves as a forum/mechanism for dealing with various local issues and for fostering community spirit through annual events such as Village Day, the Halloween party and haunted house, and the Winter Social.
