Urban Agriculture

The plan is to provide over 80% of fresh produce raised within city boundaries in 100 years. Food production areas are brought to the center of the city, re-engineering major access routes, adjusting neighborhood block and streets, using the lake as a harvesting resource, and encouraging urban agriculture at a local and community level.
