Regarding proposed pilot projects at College Hill Reservoir and the Southeast Treatment Plant.
Policy Letter
December 13, 2011

SPUR believes that urban agriculture provides multiple benefits to the city and commends the PUC for authorizing these pilot projects. In implementing them, the PUC should consider a wide variety of urban agricultural types and take the opportunity to use these sites to create model lease language and oversight mechanisms.
