March 3: Help Support the High Line at the Rail Yards!

EnlargePhotograph by Alex S. MacLean.

We hope you can join us at the Community Board 4 Full Board meeting on Wednesday, March 3, as we advocate for the full preservation of the High Line at the rail yards. The Community Board will be reviewing, as part of the seven-month Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), the City’s application to allow it to acquire the remaining section of the High Line - Section 3 - north of 30th Street.

We strongly support the City's acquisition of the High Line at the rail yards, and we encourage supporters to attend the March 3 meeting in support. Read more about ULURP.

Community Board 4 Full Board Meeting
Wednesday, March 3, 6:30 PM
Fulton Center Auditorium
119 Ninth Avenue, between 17th and 18th Streets

Community Board 4 has long been supportive of the High Line’s preservation at the Rail Yards. CB4's Chelsea Preservation and Planning Committee voted unanimously last week in support of the High Line acquisition action, and we expect the full Board to vote in favor of it as well. However, we see this meeting as a critical opportunity to demonstrate our support for both preservation and redevelopment of the High Line at the rail yards. City acquisition of the High Line is the first step towards both of those goals, so it is important to show all the stakeholders how important it is to move forward with this first step.

A public hearing on the High Line ULURP action will be the first item on the agenda, so we encourage you to come to the beginning of the meeting. If you wish to speak during the public hearing, we welcome and encourage you to do so. (There will be sign-in sheets for those who wish to speak.) The High Line public hearing will be followed by the general Community Board public session, and then the Committee reports. After the report and recommendation from the Chelsea Preservation and Planning Committee, the full Board will meet and vote on the High Line ULURP action.

Our staff will be at the meeting, so please look for us when you arrive. If you have a red "Save the High Line at the Rail Yards" or "Save the Spur" t-shirt, please wear it. We will have a limited number of t-shirts for supporters available at the door.

Please email railyards@thehighline.org if you are able to make this meeting.
