Please see revised postcard. Hours of Operation has been revised to reflect dawn to dusk.
Sole Food Street Farms has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to change the use of the existing vacant site for an Urban Farm. The proposal includes the following:
- approximately 68,458.0 square feet for a produce farm with raised planter beds and three (10'x20') shipping containers;
- proposed hours of operation from dawn to dusk, seven days a week, (accessible to the public Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.); and
- distribution of produce through farmer’s markets, delivery to restaurants and on-site sales.
Under the site’s existing M-2 zoning, the application is “conditional” so it may be permitted; however, it requires the decision of the Director of Planning.
We welcome your written comments (letter or e-mail) on this development application. Comments should be received on, or before October 16, 2017, to be included in the staff review. However, comments will be considered up until the date of decision.
