The documentation is unreadable as presented above, but if you click on the images, they should be legible. Basically, back in 1994, the Brooklyn Ecumenical Council (BEC) dedicated a pair of lots on Bedford as a community garden and park, to be jointly used and paid for by residents and owners of the surrounding buildings. Fast forward 18 years, and a developer who's acquired some adjacent land believes he has rights to the space, and has already shredded the trees, shrubs, and bushes that had adorned the lot for the past two decades. Needless to say, the residents are fighting back, and they're hoping to mount a legal and political challenge to this land grab, starting with a meeting on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 at 6:30pm in the Day Care Center on the first floor of 1448 Bedford Avenue. If you're someone who has legal expertise to offer, or if you'd just like to be involved in the preservation of green community spaces in our rapidly-changing neighborhood, get in touch via the phone numbers on the first page above.
