Photo: Urban Ag Zoning (2015)

By Dora Walmsley

Mayor Bill Peduto and Councilwoman Deb Gross, stand alongside representatives from Pittsburgh City Planning, Burgh Bees, Grow Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Food Policy Council and Pittsburgh Pro-Poultry People after a press conference celebrating Pittsburgh City Council’s unanimous approval of amendments to Pittsburgh’s Urban Ag Zoning code. The changes will make keeping chickens, bees and goats permitted by right, while significantly reducing the permit fee, and allow for easier sale of produce  grown on private lots. Leaders from these groups have worked collaboratively, over the past three years, to craft and eventually pass these changes.
