DATE CHANGE! RAIL YARDS CITY COUNCIL HEARING NOW SET FOR MARCH 31
**Please note that the City Council hearing on the Eastern Rail Yards zoning amendments has been rescheduled for Tuesday, March 31.**
This is an important step in the public review process for the rail yards and, therefore, for the future of the High Line. This hearing will be a critical opportunity to show the City, State and developer how much public support there is for preserving the High Line at these sites.
The Council has been an ardent supporter of the High Line from the very beginning of our advocacy efforts. By coming to this hearing, you’ll galvanize that support and send a clear message to all decision makers in the development process.
Free T-shirts: We will provide bright red "Save the High Line at the Rail Yards" t-shirts, yours to keep. If you already have a red "Save the Spur" T-shirt from the December 1 rally, please wear it!
