Downtown Highland Park is partnership of organizations; including the
Downtown Property Owners Association, Highland Park Chamber of
Commerce, and the City of Highland Park. The goal of the Downtown
Highland Park is to promote existing businesses and to improve the
overall economic vitality of downtown Highland Park.

The GIS Office assists the City with supporting the Downtown Highland
by providing mapping services. The most often created maps are ones of
special events promoted by Downtown Highland Park. The most recent
examples of these event maps are the Public Art Installation which
showed the proposed location of temporary art displays along Central
Ave, and the Holiday 2010 Event Locations which showed two proposed
locations for Ice Carving events at Port Clinton Square

GIS also create maps for analysis of current situations in the
downtown. Last Spring the GIS Office mapped the responses from a survey
of business in the downtown in regards to their satisfaction of the
Downtown Highland in supporting it’s goal. Mapping the location of the
responses allowed the Downtown Highland Park organization to evaluate if
it was adequately serving businesses in all areas of the downtown. The
GIS Office also mapped the location of service orientated, retail and
vacant units in the downtown. This allowed the city and Downtown
Highland Park to understand where different types of businesses were
clustered.

The City of Highland Park depends on the GIS Office to create maps to
support the various needs of Downtown Highland Park. These maps assist
Downtown Highland Park with it’s goals of promoting existing businesses
and improving the economic vitality of the downtown
