Come Home to Highland

For those looking to call Highland Home and invest in the community, this Economic Development webpage highlights the City’s "Come Home to Highland" initiative which recognizes that time is money and makes a promise to process development entitlements in the most expeditious manner. The City also conducts free pre-application meetings with investors to assist them early in the development process and avoid surprises later down the road. The webpage also discloses some of the critical development fees used to complete a cost benefit analysis by most new investors and existing stakeholders wishing to expand in Highland. Information on programs, grants, and loans for local businesses are also be found on the state’s economic development website.
