Water is life as is Food

I am hoping like I said last night at City Hall, that the City not only focus on Water but takes a hard look on what local government can do to help promote small scale Agcurculter with in or near by the city of Racine.
Perhaps by allowing some of the Brownfields to be used as Farmland or as I suggested before a Compost operation. Of course it would be best if that effort be able to pay at least the taxes if not a bit more to prove how viable Urban Ag can be. Could be a joint effort by RUGN maybe just a Farmer who knows
As part of this effort I am hoping that Chickens would be allowed within the city as per the same codes used in say Madison WI:
1) Up to 4 Hens
2) No Rosters
3) No selling of eggs
4) Must have permit
5) Must be inspected

Tried this before in Racine but then Belle City Chickens fell apart. Looks like the effort will be tried again.
