Petitioning Minneapolis City Council Members


To: Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and Minneapolis City Council Members Kevin Reich (Ward 1), Cam Gordon (2), Diane Hofstede (3), Barbara Johnson (4), Don Samuels (5), Robert Lilligren ( 6), Lisa Goodman (7), Elizabeth Glidden (8), Gary Schiff (9), Meg Tuthill (10), John Quincy (11), Sandy Colvin Roy (12), and Betsy Hodges (13)

This Plan was the result of an exhaustive, multi-year community input process by residents and experts from all corners of Minneapolis and is essential to the long-term growth and prosperity of the Minneapolis-based food economy. Among other positive innovations, the Urban Ag Policy Plan recommends allowing “market gardens” (small commercial gardens) in low-density residential areas. Legitimate concerns about potential impacts on neighbors can and should be addressed during the zoning amendment process.

Please support the current draft of the Urban Ag Policy Plan.

For more information please go to

The council will be voting to pass the plan on April 7, 2011.
