The Chelsea Improvement Company is managed by the Meatpacking District Improvement Association (MPIA), the not-for-profit business alliance of area tenants and property owners. MPIA represents and promotes the area’s businesses and their interests, produces events, and manages a marketing and public relations campaign for the district. MPIA is the neighborhood partner of the Department of Transportation (DOT) in maintaining and programming the area’s public spaces from 15th Street to Gansevoort Street.

The ultimate goal is for both organizations to become part of a larger business improvement district (BID). For information on the proposed BID, visit For information about MPIA, visit
