AB 551 – PASSED!

October 1st, 2013 by caitlyn

GREAT NEWS: the Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone act (AB551) has officially been signed into law by Governor Brown! The law will officially go into effect January 1, 2014. Final text available here.

THANK YOU to everyone who sent in letters (over and over again) and voiced support for this bill! With land access and tenure being a major challenge for urban agriculture, the passing of this law could be a huge step toward opening up more stable land use arrangements in cities across the state.
