Plan Tucson – Urban Agriculture Policy Working Group – May 3
at Sentinel Building Conference Rooms, 320 N. Commerce Park Loop
ENVIRONMENTAL INTEGRITY FOCUS AREA
Urban Agriculture Policy Working Group
Thursday May 3, 2012
The Plan Tucson Team appreciates the active participation by agency, organization, and other stakeholders in the Working Groups to develop policies for elements to be addressed in Plan Tucson, the City’s new General Plan now in preparation.
During the Working Group discussions regarding a variety of elements from public health to green infrastructure to land use to economic development, the topic of urban agriculture has come up often enough that staff decided it would be helpful to have a separate meeting devoted to the topic. Therefore, we have arranged a meeting that will include brief presentations on efforts already underway in the City and County to address urban agriculture issues and to provide an opportunity for interested stakeholders to share their thoughts about the topic.
The URBAN AGRICULTURE meeting is scheduled for:
Thursday, May 3, 2012
1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Sentinel Building Conference Rooms
320 N. Commerce Park Loop
