Public hearing on restrictive changes to urban farming regulations

There will be a public hearing about proposed changes to urban farming regulations, before the city planning commission at 2 p.m. Feb. 16 at 200 Ross Street downtown.

Many community groups and green advocates are extremely concerned about this hearing.  The lot size restrictions alone would make beekeeping and small animal farming of any kind impossible in small urban lots.  The proposed codes also have a very extensive and costly application process.

Feb 16 is the only open hearing, with submission deadline of Feb 11, so time is short.  If you would like to know more, we have the code language available at the office (or we can email it to you).   There is more information about the proposed changes in this Feb. 8th Post-Gazette article about the hearing.
