Planning Commission to Hear About Urban Agriculture Tomorrow

The Planning Commission tomorrow will consider whether to send a draft text amendment recommendation to Mayor and Council relating to urban agriculture. The City of Tucson has been working with the community to develop a proposal which would, among other things, allow people to grow their own food and raise food-producing animals, such as chickens, miniature goats, ducks, geese, and turkeys. Before deciding to move forward with a proposal, the Planning Commission will hold a public hearing at 6 p.m. in Mayor and Council Chambers, 255 W. Alameda St. Individuals on both sides of the issues may speak for up to five minutes.
