POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Friends of Leach Botanical Garden advocate for continued PDC funding - March 1, 2012

 

The Friends of Leach Botanical Garden, in East Portland, have shared a great video they created to show case the garden's value to our community.

 

Through the Lents Urban Renewal Area (URA), the Portland Development Commission committed funding for needed improvements to the garden. Today, that funding is in jeopardy.

 

The community has rallied around Leach - we've received letters from the Lents Neighborhood Association as well as the East Portland Action Plan calling on PDC to honor its prior commitment.
