On the Agenda: Proposed Expansion of Medford's Community Garden, Police Station Study

Items from upcoming Medford City Council meetings.

One City Councilor wants the city to look into expanding its community garden program.

Councilor Michael Marks has submitted a resolution calling for the city's park board to look into potential new sites for community gardens in Medford. The city currently has a garden behind McGlynn Middle School, but it has a 2-year waitlist, according to Marks. The resolution will be considered during the council's 7 p.m. meeting Tuesday.

Before its regular meeting, the council's subcommittee on public safety will meet with Police Chief Leo Sacco to review two proposals from private vendors to conduct a study on the police department's headquarters. The council as a whole could consider voting on the $175,000 study during its regular meeting.

Who can we contact to join the community garden waitlist? I have been looking and asking around for a while and no one seemed to know we even had one! We need MORE community gardens in Medford, we have so many great potential areas for them!!

I'd start with the city's parks department, Sara. Phone number: 781-393-2418.

$175,000.00 study? Are you kidding me? That is disgraceful, how mny underfed children could be fed for that? Why not just speak to the people that maintain and work in the building? Common sense can't be taught that's for sure.
