Supporting Great Institutions For All to Enjoy for Over 40 Years

 

During its over 45 years of operation the District’s annual net tax revenue has increased from $3.89 million dollars in 1972 to over $76.7 million dollars in 2016.

In recent years, approximately 83% of the net tax revenues come from the County taxpayers while City residents provide 17% of the District's tax revenues.

The expansion of the number of Subdistricts from three to five is indicative of the success and vitality of the original concept of a tax supported cultural district. Today, the Metropolitan Zoological Park and Museum District is, perhaps, the largest tax supported cultural district in this country. It is a model that other cities have often attempted to emulate.
