Community Campus

The City of Highland Park (City) and the Highland Park Public Library (Library) are exploring an expansion of the Library to better meet the community demand for space and services as well as to improve parking and traffic flow. The City is also exploring relocation of its senior and youth services to the library campus as part of a new Community Campus. The multi-purpose, multi-generational, accessible facility will provide for dedicated space for library members, seniors, and youth and also for shared space opportunities.   

Week of June 26
The consultant will be conducting soil boring testing around the library campus in order to test the condition of the soil. This work is part of scope of the project that will result in several conceptual plans for consideration as the City and Library explore expansion of the Library east, west and south. The second community engagement meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 at 7:00 PM at City Hall. Individuals are invited to attend the meeting to provide feedback as the City and Library explore the expansion of the Library and relocation of the Senior Center and the City’s Youth Services Division to the campus.
