The City of Highland is excited about a plan to have an outdoor gathering space in the downtown.
A new business is also being added.
Highland Director of Community Development, Breann Speraneo, told WGEL the city has purchased two lots off of their downtown square for a total of $10. They plan on the area being a natural extension of the square. The area will be developed into a spot for socialization and will have bocce ball courts and bag toss games, restrooms, seating and checker-top tables.
