Highlands becomes a Cool City!

The North Carolina Sierra Club is thrilled to honor Highlands, NC as its newest 'Cool City.' Mayor Don Mullen signed the US Mayors Climate Protection Agreement last month.

Highlands is working on implementing curbside recycling and changing zoning regulations in order to better protect the environment.

Check out this wonderful article in the Highlands News about the signing of the agreement.

Many thanks in particular to Mayor Mullen for having the vision to sign the agreement and to local Sierra Club member Breta Stroud for bringing it to his attention.

We will be having an event to honor Highlands on Friday, January 19th at 11 AM- more details pending.
