More than a quarter acre of City-owned land in the Irving Park community will be preserved as a community garden through a measure approved today by City Council.
The 15,000-square-foot-site on the 4200 block of West Addison Street will be transferred to the NeighborSpace land trust, which will own and insure the property for use by community residents.
The garden will be managed by Merchant Park Community Gardeners, which has already improved the site with raised plant beds. Future additions will include ornamental plants, benches and open spaces for social activities.
The proposed sale price is $1
