Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone

Property owners may apply for an Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone Contract if their property meets the following criteria:

  • It is located within a zoning district where Neighborhood Agricultural or Large-Scale Urban Agricultural Uses as defined in Planning Code Section 102 are principally or conditionally permitted uses;
  • It is at least 0.10 acres (4,356 sq ft) and not more than 3 acres (130,680 sq ft) in size;
  • It does not include any dwelling units; and,
  • It includes only structures that are accessory to the agricultural activity, including, but not limited to toolsheds, greenhouses, produce stands, or educational space.

Please note that all urban agriculture projects must have all necessary land use approvals (if applicable), such as a change of use permit, or Conditional Use Authorization allowing agricultural use, before the Agricultural Commissioner will sign a finalized Contract. It is strongly encouraged that applicants apply for the necessary use permits prior to applying for an Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone, and that they allow plenty of time for the approval process.
