WHEREAS: Community garden plots beautify the cityscape, produce healthy food and unite community members together in a tranquil environment; and
    
WHEREAS: Given the many benefits of community gardens, it should come as no surprise that there is a growing demand for more plots in the city; and  
    

ORDERED:

It has come to the attention of the Cambridge City Council that there are vacant lots at the corner of Watson and Brookline Streets and 35 Cherry Street owned by MIT that could be converted into a community garden or open space; now therefore be it 
   

ORDERED:

That the City Manager be and hereby is requested to confer with MIT and the Community Development Department to look into the feasibility of acquiring these plots of land and to work with MIT to provide access to said lots and report back to the Cambridge City Council.
