Highland Square Neighborhood Association

The Highland Square Neighborhood Association (HSNA) is comprised of creative, energetic and civic-minded citizens from throughout Akron and Northeast Ohio. Our goal is to bring together Highland Square's diverse community to preserve and promote the area’s cultural and economic prosperity. To achieve this goal, HSNA is committed to educating the community, both inside and outside the Highland Square district, on our neighborhood’s unique demographics, history, architecture and the direction of its physical development. HSNA is a 501c(3) organization.

Get Involved

There are lots of ways to get involved in Highland Square. Attend and support events in the community (many of which are free), become an event volunteer, or contact us with specific cultural or arts initiatives that you would like to see in Highland Square.

Another great way to get involved is to stay informed. HSNA works with community partners to create a sustainable and vibrant neighborhood that fosters education, arts and culture. But to make this all possible, we need your financial contributions. Make a donation to HSNA today!
