Independent Police Oversight Ballot Referral Survey

Partial Description from the Independent Police Oversight Ballot Referral Survey: Thank you for taking the time to share your input! Survey responses are due by end of day SUNDAY, JULY 12 – after which they will be reviewed by Commissioner Hardesty and staff to inform the final proposal.

Commissioner Hardesty believes that one piece of police accountability must include truly independent police oversight, and that’s why she’s working on a proposal with community advocates for council to refer a ballot measure for the November elections.

Hello Friends of LGL!

We are happy to announce that we will be hosting a plant sale on Saturday, April 25th from 11am-2pm. The plant sale will be hosted just outside the new people’s gate at LGL. There will be street parking only. We will practice social distancing by allowing only one person to shop at a time. If more than one person arrives at once, we will have a line set up that will keep people at least 6 feet apart. Please read on for all of the details!

The first half an hour will be for those over 60 and immune-compromised individuals only. If you do not fall into one of these categories, please do not arrive before 11:30!

The entire plant sale will be donation based. We ask that if you have the means, please support LGL. Nonetheless, if you have found yourself financially compromised during this time we will gladly donate the plants to you, no questions asked!

All plants available will be sold/donated on a first come, first serve basis. We will have:

  • Eggplant: Long Purple, Black Beauty
  • Pepper: California Wonder, Jalapeño, Serrano, Big Jim, Cayenne

We will accept cash, Venmo, or Paypal payments. We ask that if you plan to pay in cash that you please bring exact change. We would like to minimize the amount of cash we touch during this time.

If you plan to buy multiple plants, please try to remember to bring your own means of carrying them away.

When you arrive, please do not touch the plants until you have selected the one you plan to purchase.

We will be asking you to return your sanitized pots to us once you have planted out what you bought. More details about this will be available at the plant sale.

We hope to see you there! If you can not make it this time around, we plan to host another plant sale on Saturday, May 9th and will share more information about this as the date gets closer.
