Of course, that would mean justifying closing down an initiative that teaches inner-city residents gardening skills, provides jobs and grows crops that feed people. It is difficult to imagine the CRA has an appropriate justification, at best. While a charter school will be useful, there is no guarantee that it will open – or stay open for long.
If the CRA wants the land on which the market exists, then the officials, including CRA Chairman the Rev. Richard Dunn, owes the founder the courtesy of a frank, open meeting to discuss the matter and come up with alternatives, including one of providing alternative land.
This is not rocket science, just commonsense.
