The Douglas County Food Policy Council, established by the County Commission in 2010, seeks to identify the benefits, challenges, and opportunities for a successful, sustainable local food system in Douglas County.
The Douglas County Food Policy Council meets every third Monday of the month from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at various locations throughout our Douglas County food system. All meetings are open to the public.
Interested in Urban Agriculture? The Food Policy Council has distribted a community survey and hosted a public meeting to gather public feedback about potential policy changes. Thank you to all who participated! The Planning Department presented a draft of their recommended changes to the Planning Commission on Monday, October 19th. The agenda and the proposal are available here: http://www.lawrenceks.org/boards/planning-commission/agendas Written comments can still be submitted to Mary Miller, City of Lawrence Planner, at email@example.com.
