Proud to be Part of a Beautiful Neighborhood
We continue to work with neighbors and neighborhood groups to preserve and enhance the appearance and ambiance of the area. Our representatives and neighbors meet to address topics such as the hospital's appearance, Highland campus landscaping, parking, noise control, and ensuring hospital-neighborhood communication and collaboration.
Highland is also part of NBN6, a coalition of neighborhoods located in the south east of Rochester. Originally formed as part of the ‘Neighbors Building Neighborhoods’ initiative, a smaller group of Sector 6 neighborhoods have continued to meet and work together with Highland Hospital towards common goals.
Highland Park Neighborhood/Highland Hospital Interaction Committee (HPNHHIC)
The Highland Park Neighborhood Interaction Committee is chaired by Kay Hall, who has advocated for neighborhood concerns for many years. This group has been meeting since 2015. The purpose of the meeting is for the hospital to share information, discuss and try to resolve issues, and hear from local neighbors about their concerns, questions, and perspectives. Hospital Facilities and Public Relations staff attend the meetings.
If you live in the neighborhood and would like to attend, you may contact Kay Hall via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Meetings are held quarterly via zoom. Kay maintains an email distribution list of regular attendees in case a notification needs to be shared, meeting minutes are available, or important follow-up is necessary. The Blog is another conduit for information sharing; please sign up to receive notifications on the construction project and more.
Highland Hospital Steering Committee
The Highland Hospital Neighborhood Steering Committee was composed of several nearby residents and NBN Sector 6 representatives. The committee met monthly from 2014 to 2018 and was key in securing the hospital’s current Planned Development District, which was approved by the City of Rochester in 2019.
The committee worked together as Highland sought variances before the City Zoning Commission for its South Addition, completed in 2016. Upon its completion, the Highland Hospital Neighborhood Steering Committee's focus shifted to concentrate on collecting input and identifying priorities and concerns as the hospital worked through a Planned Development re-zoning with the City of Rochester.
