The High Line Canal Conservancy has launched the second phase of significant planning for the High Line Canal, a beloved 71-mile regional trail. This multi-jurisdictional planning initiative follows on the heels of the Community Vision Plan completed in early 2017. This planning phase will focus on a Framework Plan – a multi-year implementation plan to ensure that the Canal reaches its greatest potential as an environmental, recreational, social, historic and economic asset. It will include complete plans for signage and wayfinding, as well as landscape guidelines for all 71 miles.
The first phase of public open houses for the Framework Plan is in April. The open houses will include an existing conditions analysis, preliminary signage designs, and an opportunity for input on potential enhancement projects and project priorities. Continued support and engagement from the citizens of the region is vital to ensure the future of the Canal is reflective of the public vision. Come share your thoughts!
