Judy Tiger has it right.  Getting all of the shareholders and potential 
shareholders in a room with a skillful facilitator (or an experienced "Mom" ) a 
black board and a map of the area could help you get the "win-win" you want. 

Best wishes,

 This is a bit of a 'don't have enough information to be as helpful as I 
 be' situation, but it does sound like an opportunity for meeting many needs 
 and a real need to bring people together with a facilitator to do some 
 inclusive planning.  Anne Spirn (at U PA / Penn State?) has been involved 
with very 
 innovative and inclusive planning processes.  See if she could get involved. 
 With architects, landscape designers and urban planners involved in looking 
at a 
 neighborhood's physical space and then talking with residents, city 
 community organizations, etc. it can be possible to maximize use of the 
 to meet snow parking needs (perhaps this is the place to put play space for 
 good weather periods, not food gardening where cars have been parked) as 
 as space for play and space for gardening.  Then, of course, there is a real 
 need to find out if there are people (not city agencies, but residents) who 
 spaces to garden for food security or flower gardens, etc.  Success should 
 come from inquiring and planning together, with the end-users forefront in 
 whole process.
 Good luck!
