Sustainability Update: What’s in Your Backyard? Planning for Local Urban Agriculture

On September 19, 2013, the APA Colorado Sustainability Committee held an urban agriculture-themed meeting titled What’s in Your Backyard? The three-part event included a workshop that consisted of a discussion of conducting food systems assessments, and planning efforts, zoning ordinances, and local advocacy planning. Next there was a tour of Five Fridges Farm with owner Amanda Weaver, and finally a social hour at Colorado Plus Brew Pub. Overall, we learned about the policies and hard work it takes to support local agriculture.

Chapter Administrator Update

2013 is closed and we’re starting to look forward and plan for 2014. With the launch of our new website, we have the opportunity to better distribute information to our members and to promote our organization as a whole. I hope you’ve taken the time to visit the website since the launch in November and like what you see. Our goal is to make it the hub of all things APA Colorado.

2013 APA Colorado Presidents Award: Janet Bell

For 2013, Janet Bell is named as the recipient of The President’s Award for meritorious contributions to planning, including the recognition that good planning cannot be achieved without citizen involvement and stakeholder input; that to determine outcomes you first have to determine the component parts of an issue; and that planning is done with grace and integrity, which requires all planners to know their “bottom line.”
