Come home to Highland!




Seven months after Veterinary Surgeon Claude Gendreau unveiled plans

for nearly 10 acres along Main Street,

the project is poised to advance.


Gendreau and members of his team

will appear before the Plan Commission*

to discuss combining a series of adjacent residential parcels into a Planned Unit Development near Prairie Avenue.


“When I look at properties, I look to

see if my project can be a catalyst for

others,” Gendreau said. “I believe the

plan for Highland will attract other

high-end development.”
