Urban Food Zoning Code Update project goes to City Council

Spring is perfect gardening season in Portland, and what better time to ring in new regulations around growing, selling and buying local food.

City Council will hold a public hearing for the Urban Food Zoning Code Recommended Draft on Thursday, June 7. The document will be posted on the project website on May 21, 2012, in advance of the City Council hearing.

Urban Food Zoning Code Recommended Draft

Public Hearing with City Council

Thursday, June 7, 2012, at 2 p.m.

Portland Building, 2nd floor auditorium

1120 SW 5th Avenue (across from City Hall)

Note that this hearing will not be held in Council Chambers.

The Urban Food Zoning Code Update project recognizes the connections between food and the community’s environmental, economic and physical health and promotes traditional and emerging ways of producing and distributing food. The project's recommended changes to the zoning code support community gardens, farmers markets, small scale market gardens, as well as alternative distribution methods such as community sponsored agriculture (CSA) and food buying clubs at a scale that is appropriate to neighborhoods and helps build community.
