Bear Hunt Challenge

How this works….place a teddy bear in a street facing window so that kids can see it as they walk the streets or ride their bikes and scooters this week.

Remember to keep a 6ft distance from others during your outdoor adventures!!

Please join your neighbors to make this a fun event for all families. Let’s see how many participants we can get involved. Are you up to the challenge?

Come to our Donuts and Coffee Social Event this Saturday, June 8th, 9-11am. Venue this year will be the Trail Head along South Wickens.
Aside from our interactions over caffeine and “hole foods,” we will also celebrate the completion of our very own Little Free Library. You can bring books to donate and even pick up a few to take home yourself. (Visit for more information about lending libraries.)
Pictured above are our almost finished Trail Head Bench and our Little Free Library, both constructed by volunteers in The Highlands! We hope to have both of these come together by June 8th. If you would like to give even a little bit of your time and effort towards the completion of this project on time, please email

Follow Dumpster Directions Please

The 40-yard dumpster has arrived at the back area of Meeting House Lane and will be available for one week. If needed, we will have a second haul of this dumpster within one week.
Please carefully READ and FOLLOW the directions on the dumpster for all of our sakes. Specifically, do not leave anything outside of the dumpster. Those items left outside the dumpster will not be hauled away and will lead our HOA to stop providing this service next time. So, your compliance is crucial to keeping this service available for all residents.

What It Will Take to Have Speed Bumps or Humps in The Highlands

A recent post on our Facebook Page about a speeding car that did not come to a full stop at a Stop Sign in our neighborhood has triggered a huge response/reaction from many. We are very grateful for the engagement of residents and homeowners on this matter.

If you strongly believe that Speed Bumps or Speed Humps are needed in our neighborhood, then we will need your active help (lots of time and a ton of effort) to make that happen. In Monroe County, which our roads are under, it would mean that 70% of the voting residents of our neighborhood would have to agree to it.

Are you willing to work on gathering signatures for such a vote? Are you willing to attend meetings with the Monroe County Traffic Commission to get this done? Are you willing to help conduct informal traffic studies of our neighborhood with a radar gun during high traffic times? Are you willing to volunteer with the Speed and Safety AdHoc Committee? Then, email

To give you an idea of what this would entail, here is one article that spells it out for all of us.…/how-to-get-speed-humps
