In just a few weeks, the Urban Food Zoning Code Update project will release a discussion draft of proposed changes to the City's zoning code that will affect the way that food can be grown and distributed in Portland- particularly in neighborhoods. The proposed new code language will support activities such as community gardens, farmers markets, and food buying clubs at a scale that is appropriate to neighborhoods and helps build community.
The public's review on these proposals will begin in early February and extend into early March. The discussion draft report, along with an electronic comment sheet, will be available on this website after Feb 10th. Reports will also be available at the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability offices at 1900 SW 4th Avenue, 7th floor, or by contacting Karen Lucchesi at 503.823.4552 or firstname.lastname@example.org to have a copy mailed.
