Urban Farms Tax Breaks Bill Killed
"City Hall has previously endorsed the idea of supporting urban farmers. Earlier this year, Baltimore's food czar, the health department and the Office of Sustainability announced they were seeking urban farmers to help turn 10 acres of city-owned vacant lots into farmland.
The debate comes at a time when tax breaks for developers are coming under increased scrutiny. In his position as finance committee chairman, Stokes has threatened to impose a moratorium on tax breaks for developers until City Hall implements the recommendations of a task force to limit them."
