The Brown Township Board of Trustees will allow residents of the “Mal-Wayne” mitigation area to use township owned lots in that area,  as private/personal gardens.  There is a very limited number of available lots for this purpose, and will be available on a “first come-first served”basis.   If interested, you must contact the township office to request a lot.   If the trustees approve your request, you must come to a township meeting and sign an agreement.  You will also have to provide a certificate of insurance, showing you carry liability insure on your current property.  If accepted, you will be required to keep the “garden” lot mowed also.  Please note, not all purchased / empty lots will be available for this purpose.
