On behalf of the Urban Agriculture Committee of Kingston and as presented to the Kingston Conservation Advisory Council on Thursday, February 6th 2014 here is the draft Urban Agriculture Planning and Zoning report for Phase 1, which includes an Executive Summary and Chapters 1 – 3 of a larger study that our group is undertaking to support the many activities in the city and county to support “local food systems change.”
The group looks forward to the opportunity to discuss this work with the Kingston 2025 Comprehensive Planning committee to support the integration of these DRAFT recommendations into the comprehensive plan and zoning (click on the links below to download and view).
