Community Garden License near Locust Lane
W. Clarke Whitfield, Jr.
Business Meeting: 01/18/2022
The Danville Masjid and Islamic Center desires to obtain a license from the City to operate a community garden upon two (2) surplus vacant lots owned by the City along Locust Lane.
The City owns two (2) vacant properties along Locust Lane and Sunset Place identified as Parcels #05001 and #05005, respectively. These parcels do not have any current or planned City use. The Danville Masjid and Islamic Center, a community non-profit, desires to utilize portions of these lots to operate a community garden. The City has an established program encouraging the use of vacant City-owned lots by community groups interested in operating public community gardens. The granting of a license by the City to allow for a community garden is conditioned on the licensee abiding by a license agreement and a series of best practices, copies of which are attached to the resolution.
City staff recommends the Council grant a one (1) year community garden license to the Danville Masjid and Islamic Center for Parcels 05001 and 05005 subject to the conditions included in the License Agreement, and Rules and Procedures attached hereto.
