Great News to Share!

We were informed today by the city that the Urban Agriculture Ordinance will be submitted to the City Council at the February 28 City Council meeting. Based on that, and on other items that are on tonight’s City Council agenda, we’re going to confine our public remarks to one speaker in support of the ordinance.

Show Up Tonight!

That doesn’t mean that we’ve won, though. We’re still asking folks to show up at City Hall with your signs in support of commercial urban agriculture so that the councilors can see just how much support there is for these zoning changes here in the Woo. They benefit the city’s health, environment, economy and food safety and security in so many ways.
