The updated and remodeled Highlands Community Center opened to the public late last year. Nearly $100,000 in Community Development Block Grant funds paid for the renovations that included adding ADA-accessible ramps and bathrooms, new floors, plumbing, wiring, and paint. The Highlands Neighborhood Association purchased the 1200 sq.ft. home in 2013, moved in for awhile, and then closed it for several months so it could be revamped. More improvements are planned for the future including a new roof and fixing up the garage which is located on an adjacent lot. The Highlands Community Center serves as a free library complete with computers, hosts an after-school program and serves as a gathering place for meetings, community groups and classes.
