Many of these addresses are residential. Will the City regulate vegetable drop offs in residential areas? I mean, it could potentially increase traffic to the residential areas of the drop off sites.

You see, these are the sorts of questions that come up when the City wants to regulate the activities of owners or tenants of residential properties, bus.

Just an FYI: At the Planning and Zoning Commission public hearing on the urban garden issue, Millsap made it sound as though the purpose of the "commercial" stand she covets was really to benefit her neighbors, that they would be able to purchase veggies from her. I'd want to seek clarification before I characterized it that way for sure though.

Keep posting!
