Reclaiming the Farm
A group of Cambodian refugees evicted from city-owned property they’d farmed without a permit for nearly three decades could soon return to the land, but only once the now-decrepit farm has been cleaned up.
The Roadblock
The Neighborhood House, a local nonprofit that held the lease on the land, should have cleaned the property before returning it to the city, but it didn’t do the work and now says it’s not responsible.
What I’m Watching Next
After VOSD raised questions about the nonprofit’s responsibility, the organization now says it will help pay for the cleanup. I’ll be following up to see what kind of help it offers.
