Food Systems: The Next Urban Planning Frontier
Mark Winne writes about the implications that food systems have on housing, economic development, transportation, and vice versa. He uses various state, regional and local planning efforts in Hartford, CT to illustrate how planners are making an impact on food systems in cities. He reports that all over the country, several state and local food planning councils are in the early stages of development. He writes: "While its limitations are many and its history short, food system planning and its most common vehicle, food policy councils, are rapidly emerging in response to an ever expanding agenda of food, agriculture and nutrition concerns."
