SUISUN CITY — The future of Suisun City’s community garden is up in the air because of plans to put residential housing on its present home.
Suisun City Councilwoman Jane Day brought up the issue Tuesday, asking if gardeners who use the community garden will be able to plant their vegetables and flowers in the garden’s 80 plots this spring or if the proposed development will forestall that.
Main Street West Partners, the master developer picked by Suisun City to develop downtown Suisun City’s vacant areas, wants to build a small residential subdivision on the land located on the north side of Lotz Way between Port Way and Civic Center Boulevard.
Day also asked what was happening with efforts to find a new long-term home for the garden. City staff has been looking at other sites, but the problem has been a lack of a city-supplied water source the gardeners need for watering their gardens.
This is the second time Day brought up the issue, saying she has been getting calls from community members asking about the community garden’s future.
