More (but not total) protection for gardens

From the Daily News:

City officials eager to quash a green rebellion are planning to announce a compromise this week on the fate of community gardens.

A source familiar with the city's latest proposal says new guidelines would give gardens more protections from development - but would stop short of guaranteeing their existence.

"Legally, nothing is permanent, but we need to make protections stronger," said a city source who saw a draft of proposed new rules.

The rules would require the city to give the community additional notice if a garden might be threatened and would give extra protections to gardens that are in good condition and where gardeners follow city rules.

I wish Bloomberg's parents used protection!
