SUPPORTING GREAT INSTITUTIONS FOR ALL TO ENJOY FOR OVER 40 YEARS

During its 45 years of operation, the District’s annual net tax revenue increased from $3.89 million in 1972 to over $80 million in 2017

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.
