SECOND COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR ORDINANCE NO. 100299, AS AMENDED

 

Amending Chapter 88, Zoning and Development Code, by repealing Tables 110-1, 120-1, 130-1, and 140-1, and Section 88-805-06 and replacing said tables and section with tables and a section of like number and title, changing the section number for Wireless Communication Facility, and adding a new Section 88-312, Agriculture, all to provide for and regulate urban agriculture; and directing the City Manager to make certain reports to the Council regarding this ordinance.

 

WHEREAS, Kansas City, through the adoption of the Climate Protection Plan in 2008, has committed to being a Green City; and

 

WHEREAS, said plan included recommendations to “promote residential neighborhood food production” and to “create urban agriculture zoning to foster fruit and vegetable production as well as small-scale animal husbandry on vacant land and lots within neighborhoods,” and

 

WHEREAS, all residents of the city should have access to healthy food that is reasonably priced; and

 

WHEREAS, the City desires to create local employment opportunities, particularly in the field of green infrastructure, and

 

WHEREAS, urban agriculture can return underused urban spaces to being productive land uses: and

 

WHEREAS, urban agriculture reduces the need for transportation, processing, packaging and refrigeration of food grown elsewhere and transported into the city; and

 

WHEREAS, urban agriculture offers opportunities for urban residents, especially children, to learn about the principles of environmental sustainability, ecology, biology, plants, and insects; and

 

WHEREAS, other cities across the country are adopting legislation to further urban agriculture; and

 

WHEREAS, although urban agriculture can bring many benefits to the City, there is a need to regulate such land uses to protect neighborhoods, prevent nuisances, protect property values, protect the environment, and ensure the health and safety of the City’s residents; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That Chapter 88, Zoning and Development Code, by repealing Tables 110-1, 120-1, 130-1, and 140-1, and Section 88-805-06 and replacing said tables and section with tables and section of like number and title, adding a new section 88-805-07, Wireless Communication Facility (which makes no substantive changes but rather renumbers the section from 88-805-06-C), and adding a new Section 88-312, Agriculture, to read as follows:
