Announcing a new Meetup for Greater Denver Urban Homesteading Group!

What: Urban Agriculture & Lakewood Zoning Improvement Process

When: Tuesday, May 18,[masked]:30 PM

Lakewood Civic Center
480 S. Allison Parkway
Lakewood, CO 80226
(303)[masked]

Thanks Terri V. for bringing this event to our attention! Lakewood is hosting an event to explore the topic of urban agriculture. The event will allow residents and business owners to hear from experts on the topic and to share their comments and ideas as a part of the Lakewood! Zoning Improvement Process. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. on May 18th with an open house in the Civic Center South Building and a formal presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers. Both sessions will be at 480 S. Allison Parkway.

Urban agriculture is gaining momentum in metropolitan areas around the country. While Lakewood allows the keeping of food producing animals in some residential districts, the areas that allow for this type of use are limited. The City is hosting the event to provide education on urban agriculture topics such as keeping chickens for personal egg production and harvesting bees for honey. There will also be an opportunity for Lakewood residents and business owners to voice their views on how to address this emerging topic as the City updates the Zoning Ordinance.

The event is one of several ways the City is soliciting comments and community involvement during the Zoning Improvement Process. It has been 30 years since Lakewood has performed a comprehensive review and update of the City?s zoning laws and regulations.

Updating the zoning laws and regulations will allow Lakewood to respond to new building technologies, better facilitate community investment and implement the community?s vision for Lakewood. Zoning controls whether land can be used for homes, offices, stores and other uses, but it also regulates items such as signs, how close buildings can be to property lines and other details.
