About HPNA Projects and Teams

Both Banners and the HPN Logo were the result of Team Projects

Would you like to be involved with one or more of the exciting projects & events planned by the  Highland Park Neighborhood Association?  If so, consider joining one of our project teams.   The HPNA Board coordinates its mission with these approved teams.   As a result our association acts as an enabling local resource for our residents who wish  to take action within this community.

As of early 2015, the Current Major HPNA Projects and Teams are as follows, click on the name to visit the specific team or project page which will contain a description and contact info.

Here are the concepts and procedures that define Highland Park Neighborhood Association Teams:

  • Teams are expected to use the HPNA mission statement as a filter for deciding on which projects and events are relevant and appropriate.
  • All team members should remember that they represent our neighborhood when communicating with other people and while attending outside group meetings.
  • Teams should view themselves as adjuncts within the process of good government and work to partner with City Professionals as well as other community organizations.  Whenever possible teams should look to share their success with other groups within and outside the HPNA.
  • Teams should be inclusive  of all resident members who wish to work within this framework to the betterment of our neighborhood.

In support, the HPNA devotes a  series of pages to all its  active projects and teams on  this website as well as other resources:

  • Membership Booth at 2013Taste of the Neighborhood

    Taste of the Neighborhood

    The pages provide Team & Project descriptions and List Team Chairs and Coordinators.  The teams should verify the information on their respective pages.

  • Teams should share minutes & agenda as well as  brief summary projects reports with board.  Even one or two sentence emails, such as “The Team did not meet this month” or “Discussions about <issue> continued at February meeting.  We expect to achieve consensus shortly and will share this when ready”
  • Minutes, Presentations and other important documents should also be shared with residents via HPNA Team Web Pages whenever possible
  • The HPNA Board must approve any team expenditures from general funds.  Amounts > $100 should be presented in person and in advance at Board Meeting for a vote.
  • Teams should work within the HPNA communication structure  and volunteer efforts to advertise their open meetings and recruitment.
  • Team leaders have an Open invitation to attend HPNA Board meetings.  It is suggested that Team leaders or other members use these meetings to keep the board informed on evolving “hot button” issues.
  • Team Leaders are included on Call fors Agenda Items prior to Board Meetings
  • The HPNA Board will supply redirected an email address to team leaders, such as “traffic@highlandparkrochester.org”  or “security@highlandparkrochester.org”

Over the last few years, Highland Park Neighborhood Association Teams have evolved into a positive model of volunteering in action and, along with the HPNA Board have achieved many accomplishments towards our community’s improved quality of life.  Our residents are encouraged to join us as we continue to “pay it forward” when it comes to defining our reputation for involvement.
