Friends of the High Line and the Improvement District Steering Committee sought broad community input on the idea of creating an Improvement District to help the City's new High Line park.
The Steering Committee reached out to the larger High Line community, so that their responses would help determine whether to move forward. Following these public outreach efforts, it was decided to put the proposal on hold. While many strongly supported the concept, important concerns were also raised.
Friends of the High Line has always been a community organization, and the members of the Steering Committee are community members first and foremost. Friends of the High Line will continue to work withthe community to develop a diversified revenue stream for the High Line's future, so that the park can always be maintained and operated at the level necessary to make it a treasured asset to its community and to the city as a whole.
