Meeting to be held in the fourth floor conference room of the Busch Municipal Building at 6:30 p.m.
Springfield's Urban Garden Task Force will begin considering draft definitions related to the urban gardening issue tonight at their fourth meeting. According to the agenda, they will also begin formulating recommendations for City staff to consider.
Senior Planner Daniel Neal passed along several documents to Task Force members and other interested parties on September 2, giving them nearly a week to look over the documents, prior to this September 8 meeting.
First draft definitions were included in the documentation. The definitions spanned: Personal gardens; community gardens; commercial gardens; and farmer's markets.
Personal and community garden standards were roughly outlined but, there were no standards outlined at all for commercial gardens and farmer's markets.
