The Coalition established the task force in April 2020 to examine how zoning and planning policies impact urban farmers in Greater Kansas City. The task force will release a report in Summer 2021 with their findings and policy recommendations for local cities to ensure urban farmers may operate successfully.
Join our monthly task force meetings if you are involved in urban agriculture or urban planning. Task force members present project updates and engage stakeholders. Register online to receive Zoom meeting details. Find Upcoming Meetings
