- work within the framework of a 2021 vision and guiding principles for the future of agriculture in the City.
The 2003 AVS has guided decisions regarding development proposals where there may be an impact to agriculture and led to significant City infrastructure (i.e. drainage) and regulatory improvements for agricultural areas. The AVS has also been effective in creating enhanced public awareness of agricultural viability and food security issues in the City.
