Public Forum on Proposed Safe Grow Zone

A number of City residents are promoting establishing Takoma Park as a Safe Grow Zone where the use of cosmetic lawn and garden pesticides is limited or prohibited. The City Council will hold a public forum on the matter on Monday, March 18, from 7:30 to 8:30 pm in the Community Center Auditorium. The forum will feature a panel including the Public Works Director, who would be responsible for implementing the plan on City property, and plan proponents. Residents who wish to learn more or comment on the proposal are encouraged to attend the forum. Background information for the Proposed Safe Grow Zone Ordinance is available here:
