Pete Forsyth wrote a detailed blog post about the Mt. Tabor Yard & Nursery planning process on his own blog, Our New Mind. He covers concerns about horticultural issues, public input and process, the possible covering of the reservoirs, vehicle access on the western edge of the yard, the site’s historic designation, zoning, urban forestry, and political considerations. Please comment over there.
