On Tuesday, November 16, 2010, the City Council Committee on Parks & Recreation will hold an Oversight Hearing on Community Gardens at 1:00 p.m. in the 14th Floor Committee Room, 250 Broadway. (Across the street from City Hall)
This will be the first public hearing since the City adopted its controversial new community garden rules.
Interested parties are invited to attend the hearing and testify. If you plan to participate, officials suggest bringing twenty (20) copies double-sided of your written testimony. Copies are passed out to elected officials in attendance, a copy is also entered into the official record of the hearing. Non-written testimony is also encouraged.
Please also note that due to increased building security procedures, identification must be presented in the lobby & allot some extra time for entry through the building lobby. Allot extra time also for the large crowed expected and the small room available as a result of renovations to City Hall. - Geoffrey Croft
