Save Hollywood's Community Garden!!
We respectfully ask that the City of Hollywood and Pinnacle Development include the existing Hollywood Community Garden, an 8 year long community project, in theproposed Senior Rental Development called ‘Peacefield’. The vacant city land is 5 acres with the Community Garden occupying only 1 of these 5 acres. The Community Garden should remain as a community benefit especially for the new senior residents. It will bring the community together for the purpose of beautification, education, recreation, and nutrition. The Community Garden could be counted as part of the 30% required green space and replace landscape plans for sod, etc. The monies used to pay the land are Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds as Is the bonus paid to Pinnacle by the City of Hollywood to help Pinnacle acquire the tax credit to move forward with the project. There should be a benefit to the Citizens of our Low Moderate Income (LMI) area as a whole. Without additional cost we ask for the Community Garden to be part of the project plans moving forward. Please join us in saving this important community gem by signing! We need 5,000 signatures to have a significant place at the table, so please spread the word!
