SYNOPSIS

This program facilitates interim use of vacant land through mutual agreement of landowners, user groups, and the City. It allows citizens, neighborhood groups, and organizations to qualify for a special no-fee City permit and expedited land-use approval when they “adopt” public or private vacant land on a temporary basis for community benefit purposes, which include community gardens.
