Welcome to the City of Highland Haven
Burnet County, Texas
Burn Ban has been lifted for City of Highland Haven as of 8/9/2017.
Highland Haven is located in the central Texas Hill Country on beautiful Lake LBJ. Just seven miles west of Marble Falls on Highway 1431, the city offers just the right mix of convenience and country style to attract people of all ages.
Whether to enjoy lake living full-time or just on weekends, Highland Haven is the place to be!
Highland Haven has its own City Hall Building that is dedicated to past Mayor Roscoe L. Holt. Additionally, there is a spacious Community Center located just behind City Hall that is used for townhall meetings and party gatherings . Trailer, boat and RV parking, located on the city lot, is available to residents along with a limited number of enclosed storage rooms.
There are six parks situated around the lake for the enjoyment of residents and guests. Dove Park has a deluxe boat launch capable of handling large lake crafts.
The City operates under a Mayor-Council form of government consisting of a Mayor and five City Aldermen (or council members). The Mayor and a part time City Secretary are the only paid employees of the city. Volunteers perform many tasks necessary for the operation and maintenance of the city.
The City is responsible for street maintenance, building codes, adoption and enforcement of ordinances affecting the welfare and safety of citizens, and budget administration. City expenses are funded through a city property tax. We have the lowest tax rate of any city in the area.
You are encouraged to visit City Hall during office hours (9:30a.m. to 12:00 noon, Monday through Thursday) to review city ordinances that regulate construction, modification, and use of structures, including driveways.
You are also encouraged to attend the Board of Alderman meetings held the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall.
