Abstract

A guidebook was created to help municipal officials navigate the legal, political and economic challenges of encouraging urban agriculture in their communities.

Key Question

How can cities employ zoning to balance competing interests in the use of urban land while reducing barriers to urban agricultural production, distribution and sales?

Findings

Through discussion of agricultural best practices and sample zoning code language from over 80 municipalities across the country, Guidebook readers are given the tools to make well-informed policies choices about local land use regulations.
