Open House and Public Workshop on April 16th was a huge success!
On Wednesday, April 16, 2014 the Town of Highland Park hosted an open house (4:30 – 5:45pm) and public workshop (6:00 – 8:00pm) at Bradfield Elementary School auditorium. The open house provided an opportunity for residents to speak one on one or in small groups about specific concerns with members of the consultant team prior to the public meeting. During the public meeting, the consultant team presented a summary of recent and present traffic conditions in Highland Park, and then demonstrated a range of possible solutions to the problems that residents had mentioned in previous meetings and on the website.

For solutions that applied to specific locations, the team demonstrated models of how those solutions would affect traffic on the surrounding streets so that residents could see the potential impact of each option. Residents were given voting ballots and asked to vote on the full range of options, ranking their preferences from 0 to 5, with 0 representing, “I don’t want to see this in Highland Park” and 5 representing “I would love to see this in Highland Park.”
The team also presented a range of street design solutions that could be implemented on a town-wide scale, and invited residents to vote on those options as well. The meeting concluded with a discussion about whether Highland Park should work regionally to prioritize traffic reduction strategies in future planning initiatives.
For those community members who were not able to attend, it’s not too late to vote! We have created an online voting ballot where you can share your preferences on the same issues that were presented at the meeting.
