Plans for a proposed community garden to be placed at Cross Street School are dead, the Waterbury Republican-American reports.

The proposal had received a favorable review from the Board of Education and Town Planning and Zoning Commission. But it received a major thumbs down from Meadowside Place residents, which is adjacent to the school. They complained about increased traffic and children safety, the Republican-American reports.

While the proposal is dead at Cross Street School, officials are eyeing other sites including borough owned land on Andrew Mountain or in the Naugatuck Industrial Park, reports Paul Singley, of the Republican-American.

I'm ok with placating those residents on this one. Bad enough they have to put up with river stink.

A community garden can be very beneficial with proper planning and a great location; not only it can produce food but also can bring communities together.
