Community Board to Vote on High Line Resolution

Wednesday, April 2, 2003, 6:00 PM
St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital
1000 Tenth Avenue (58th & 59th Streets)


This Wednesday, April 2, Manhattan Community Board No. 4 will vote on a resolution in support of the preservation and reuse of the High Line. If you are a resident or business-owner in the High Line area, or if you represent a civic organization with links to the issue, you can sign up to speak in support of the pro-High Line resolution. The meeting date, time, and location are above.

The CB4 resolution follows many months of discussion and meetings. At two public CB4-sponsored meetings, in April 2002 and February 2003, community residents, business-owners, and civic groups came out in force to support the High Line. At both hearings, opinion in favor of preservation and reuse in the packed rooms was virtually unanimous. These public meetings led CB4’s Chelsea Planning and Preservation Committee to vote 9-1, with with one abstaining, to recommend that the full Board of CB4 support the High Line preservation and reuse initiative.
