Everyone seems to have an idea of what they'd like to see the City of Larkspur do with its parcel in the developing Rose Garden Project. The City Council will discuss the community facility parcel during its Wednesday meeting at 6:30 p.m.
The owners of the former Niven Nursery sold the Doherty Drive property to New Home Company, which plans to build housing on the site. Part of the property is scheduled to be returned to the City, however.
Some have suggested it would be a good site for a new library or a community recreation center, possibly a senior activity center.
One group is trying to raise funds to buy the property to establish Larkspur Farms. Neither City Manager Dan Schwarz nor Mayor Len Rifkind have been approached with an offer by Larkspur Farms to buy the land and they both suggest it will take money to seed the idea of a farm there.
If you have a suggestion for the development of the property, send it to City Hall for consideration during a May 16 meeting.
The City Council is also expected Wednesday to officially adopt an emergency moratorium banning marijuana dispensaries within the city. The Council voted to approve the moratorium at its April 4 meeting.
