Sign the Petition to Help Save Siempre Verde Garden from a Bulldozing Luxury Development

Friday morning, we reported the sad but unsurprising news that the recently-forged Siempre Verde Garden is threatened by a proposed five-story luxury residential development. Garden faithful probably expected this in the back of their minds, but more than likely hoped would not come to pass.
An urgent plea to help save the “youngest” GreenThumb garden from extinction is now making the rounds. The petition spells out everything we already know about the situation, and has almost 100 signatures. The developer in question wants to again combine the three parcels – 137-139 Attorney, 181 Stanton – and construct sixteen rental units (20% of which is affordable); 421-a tax abatement is sought.
Please help us to Save Siempre Verde Garden by prohibiting the disposition of the 2 city owned lots that are currently home to the garden. We need this space to provide a green oasis for our neighbors to get to know each other and teach their children the importance of plant life for a sustainable future.
This has uphill battle written all over it.
Community Board 3 will vote on the matter on October 14.
