Aug 10: Public Hearing on Proposed Changes to the 2002 Community Gardens Agreement

Filed under: Events,Notices — by west104garden @ 8:24 am

Dear Gardeners,

Thanks to everyone who made the Wednesday night Work Evening so productive. If you did not attend, please contact Alan Tenney (alan.tenney@gmail.com) for a make-up work assignment.

Lou Ludyny, our Green Thumb Representative, spoke at the meeting about the Proposed Rules for community gardens that will replace the 2002 Memorandum of Agreement between the New York State Attorney General and the Bloomberg Administration that has been protecting community gardens for the past 8 years and will expire in Sept 2010. The New York City Community Garden Coalition (NYCCGC) is in firm opposition to these Proposed Rules because they threaten community gardens with development and do not offer the same protections as the 2002 Community Gardens Agreement.

A public hearing for comments on the Proposed Rules on community gardens under Parks and the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) will be held on

Tuesday, Aug 10, 2010
Chelsea Recreation Center
430 W 25th St (between 9th and 10th)

Please attend if you can and give your support for community gardens. For more information about the Proposed Changes, how to register to give testimony, what/who to bring and how to have your voice heard is available at
http://www.nyccgc.org/ or contact Lou Ludyny (louludyny@aol.com)
