Lantzville urban agriculture recommendations delayed

The committee tasked with addressing urban agriculture in Lantzville has delayed presenting its recommendations to council to allow time to iron out two issues.

The seven-member committee is still trying to come to an agreement about lot sizes in relation to garden size.

“The committee struggled with that a little,” said Warren Griffey, a Lantzville councillor and member of the committee.

The second issue being debated is whether the hauling of manure on site is acceptable.

Griffey said the committee hopes to present its recommendations at next weeks council meeting. But Twyla Graff, chief administrative officer, said because the facilitator is out of town this week, the recommendations will most likely be presented at the Oct. 17 council meeting.
