Expanding Edith’s Garden

September 14th, 2007

Neighbor volunteers paid gardeners to trim the overgrowth from the plantings along Twin Peaks Blvd and neighbors continue to support the corner known as Edith’s garden at Twin Peaks Blvd and Crown Tr.  It is hoped that more participants will donate to keep these areas beautiful and colorful.  Some have voiced the desire to continue the plantings all the way down to Clayton. Anyone interested in participating in any way should contact TPIA.  Donations made to a special garden fund are tax deductible.

Possible open space at 30 Aquavista Way?

September 14th, 2007

30 Aquavista Way is a privately owned large parcel in Midtown Terrace near the reservoir which the adjoining neighbors have been advocating be left open space. Recently the Open Space Advisory Committee (PROSAC) met on September 4 and recommended 30 Aquavista for purchase by the City for the Natural Areas Program. It now goes back to Park & Rec for funding options. Park & Rec is applying to the Coastal Conservancy first, then other options. Fifteen neighbors attended the meeting, which helped with the passage of the recommendation. Stay tuned for further developments.
