The Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone Program provides tax incentives to vacant lot owners who enter a contract with the City to use their lot for agricultural purposes for a period of 5 years. While under contract, the lot owner pays property taxes based on the agricultural value of the property, which can offer substantial savings. This opens up new opportunities for local farming and gardening to provide locally grown produce to the Long Beach community. Follow the links below to find information for interested farmers and vacant lot owners.
