About the
Highland Merchants Association

The Highland Merchants Association (HMA) is an organization of neighborhood businesses that work to promote the prosperity and longevity of the Highlands Square area of Northwest Denver. For more than 25 years, the HMA has represented the businesses in our neighborhood, now amounting to more than 50 local restaurants, boutiques, doctors offices, salons, fitness studios, realtors and more that are dedicated to serving the residents of this area. The HMA’s primary goal is to keep Highland Square a top destination for Denver residents and visitors, and they do that through many projects throughout the year — including streetscaping, holiday decorations and 10 signature events that serve the neighborhood annually.

The businesses that represent the HMA donate their time and resources to keep Highlands Square the beautiful, historic destination that it is. We encourage you to show your appreciation by supporting those businesses who give back to this place we call home.

This is the first year that the HMA is collecting donations from Highlands Square residents to help fund neighborhood improvement projects and future events. If you’re interested in contributing a tax-deductible donation, please visit the link below.
