Urban Ag Plan Passes Planning Commission

Last night, the City Planning Commission unanimously sent the Urban Agriculture Topical Plan forward. I look forward to strongly supporting it when it comes before both the Zoning and Planning committee and the full Council.

I see this plan as one of the most important steps the City can take in implementing the Homegrown Minneapolis recommendations. The plan recommends, for the first time in any policy document, that the City allow commercial food growing in Minneapolis, along with a great many other important recommendations. Altogether, the plan's recommendations will help make Minneapolis a leader in the local food movement, improving the health, sustainability and economy of our city.
