January 2011 ANNIVERSARY

Enhancing property values and creating quality of life through recreation, community events and leadership

3 0 th a n n i v e r s a ry We’ve come a long way in 30 years! Mission Viejo Company acquired the option on the property now known as Highlands Ranch in 1978. Construction on homes began in 1980, and in 1981 the first residents moved into their new home and the first Highlands Ranch baby was born. In 1982 Northridge Park, the Recreation Center at Northridge, Northridge Elementary, and the community’s first businesses opened. The result 30 years later is the most successful master-planned community in the nation. This year we will honor and celebrate our history at many of our community events, in the newsletter, and on our web site. Look for more facts about our history and growth as a community in the coming year.

scholarship news Thank you Highlands Ranch American Legion Post #1260 for the $1,000 commitment to the Highlands Ranch Community Scholarship Fund. For more information, see page 2.
