getting kicked out!

We are in Livermore California. Our small community garden has been in a 
location for 20 years, that is to become the new community center complex. 
While this has been understood and known all along, the gardeners were 
assured that construction would be to the west of their site and would not 
impact them. This is true. The construction of the new building which are 
now going to be built will be to the west of the gardens with existing 
tennis courts inbetween. Now the staff of the Park and Rec. District has 
desided that the gardens don't belong at the center--that they are ugly and 
only serve the 30 gardeners who rent the plots. They want to replace it 
with a sand vollyball court, a picnic table and a half basketball court. 
This has gone to the board of directors and , even though about 1,000 
signatures form towns folk were collected to keep the garden in that spot, 
they voted to move the garden to a park on the edge of existing town, 4 to 
1.  I am the 1. I would like to know if you could provide us with any 
information that may help us overturn this vote. Do you have knowlege of 
any other community centers with gardens attached? Any statistics that show 
people benifited form gardens, how it helps the community etc? If so could 
you get that information to me ASAP? Thanks! Alice Quinn, 2300 N. Livermore
