Reduce zoning obstacles for urban agricultural practices, such as vertical and rooftop farming, growing and selling produce, and keeping chickens and/or beehives. Steps to reduce obstacles include:

  1. Amending zoning codes to allow for specific agricultural animals in residential districts
  2. Establishing a pilot permit program to incrementally increase the number of agricultural animals
  3. Explicitly excluding agricultural activities in nuisance laws and aesthetic regulations

Strengthen home-rule powers of municipalities and counties as it relates to agricultural zoning so decisions about community agriculture are localized.
