Let the Urban Gardens on Sitgreaves and Church Sts Stay

To the City of Easton and its Code Inspectors,

Please do not force the residents of 207 Church St. to remove their gardens.

If you choose to enforce a sidewalk code against beautiful and well-maintained container gardens which residents grow on their sidewalks, but choose to exempt stinky, ugly dumpsters, 55-gallon grease drums, loose garbage and eye-level weeds in the same neighborhood, what message are you sending to your citizens? The garbage and the weeds are a year-round detraction in the neighborhood while the gardens add beauty and life, grow fresh and healthy food, and make a walk through these alleys more enjoyable. 

We, the undersigned, request common sense with both code enforcement and language of the code. If you enforce a code, enforce it equally and sensibly, or not at all.

 

We petition you to allow the potted gardens, which are grown on Sitgreaves and Church Streets (207 Church St., Easton), to stay. We support urban gardeners and hope that you will, too.

We wish to see Easton clean, safe, attractive, and green and feel our laws, ordinances and enforcement of codes should reflect that.

 

Thank you.
