The
Hive


We welcome you to a very wonderful community. Here is a brief introduction to the neighborhood and Highland United Neighbors, Inc (HUNI pronounced “honey” - thus the bee in the logo), your neighborhood organization.

 

What is Highland? Highland is bounded by the South Platte River, Speer Blvd (with a jog at 29th to include Viking Park), Federal Blvd, 38th Avenue to Inca. It is home to more than 10,000 households and scores of businesses. HUNI is a 501(c)(3) volunteer organization committed to making Highland a better place to live, work, and play. 

 

There are some great books about the neighborhood and its history, notably Rediscovering Northwest Denver: Its History, Its People, Its Landmarks,by Ruth Eloise Wiberg. Highland houses 3 historic districts (Potter-Highlands, Old Highland Business District, and W. 28th Avenue - Stoneman's Row). HUNI’s Planning and Community Development Committee provides guidance on zoning and development issues. Check out its brochure, especially if you are planning any renovations/changes to your property. It is a tad dated, but the procedures, etc. are still current.

We want you to be a part of our volunteer group - it is the perfect opportunity to:

  • Meet new people

  • Keep your "finger on the pulse" of what is happening in Highland

  • Creates an opportunity to play an active role in responsibly caring for your neighborhood where you live, work and play

  • A safe and creative way for your whole family to participate in community service

 

Get involved

HUNI is always looking for volunteers to help at events, as well as community members interested in joining the Board or a committee. We do trash pickup quarterly along designated Adopt-A-Streets. We spend 45 minutes on a Saturday and then convene at Method Coffee for a quick high five and go about our weekend. Reach out to us personally: info@denverhighland.org to join up.

Heads-up:

 

  • Trash days: https://www.denvergov.org/pocketgov/#/mySchedules/trash  If your trash day is the same as street sweeping, please put your trash/recycling, etc. on the other side of the street. If you want to get a green bin for your household and garden waste, sign up here or see if you can share with a neighbor.

 

  • Parking: Many of neighbors park on the street.As a courtesy, please leave the parking space in front of their house for them.

 

How do I find out what’s going on?
