Urban Ag Ordinance Proposal Progress

Summit Food Coalition has hosted three stakeholder brainstorming sessions related to an urban ag ordinance.  There have been a number of great ideas shared over the course of those meetings.  We are now moving on to the research stage- looking in depth at our list of ideas and seeing how other municipalities are bringing those to life, and how we might adapt those practices and guidelines for the City of Akron. 

We are currently asking for stakeholders to share their preferred topic to research as well as convenient times to meet here.  We are planning to host research progress meetings beginning in July. 

Here are the notes from each brainstorming session: May 18, June 4, June 13.

Additionally, here are some resources we are looking to during our research:
