The Law Center and its partner organizations who make up the Campaign for Healthier Foods and Greener Spaces are thrilled to announce that City Councilman Brian O’Neill will amend Bill 120917 on January 24, 2013, to restore community gardens and market or community supported farms in CMX-2 and 2.5 as a matter of right, as was originally allowed in the new zoning code.

The Campaign is extremely grateful for the individuals and organizations that made their concerns known and to all of the councilmembers and staff who took the time out of busy schedules to meet with and listen to their constituents.  We ask that all take a moment to thank your district council member and the at-large members for their support in obtaining this crucial amendment.
