Our Testimony on the Upcoming City Budget

March 21, 2017

City budget negotiations are currently underway, and in our testimony to the City Council we tackled some of the most pressing issues facing our open space: federal budget cuts which will have a hugely negative impact on community gardens in some of our city’s neediest areas; the need for better maintenance which will also create good-paying jobs; support for the volunteer community groups who dedicate so much time and energy to improving our city, and more.
