SOFSA Letter Supporting Implementation of ReZone Syracuse

On August 2nd, 2022, SOFSA submitted a letter to Syracuse city officials requesting their swift action to implement new zoning ordinances for the city. ReZone Syracuse has been a project of the city’s Planning Division in collaboration with other city departments and a Project Advisory Committee which included several SOFSA members, but stalled in late 2019.

SOFSA’s Policy & Planning Committee jointly crafted the letter and solicited sign-ons from over 25 individuals and 9 organizations to urge prompt adoption of the zoning code based on the important implications for the urban food system.
