Excerpt:

“It’s part of the sharing economy,” said Major Javier Gonzales, who sponsored the ordinance. “It’s about expanding opportunity for income for families who want to be in some of the farming business and do our part to remain true to our cultural identity.”

“I think people were concerned the ordinance would allow for mass scale farming production in neighborhoods that enjoy some tranquility and peace,” Gonzales said. “That will continue to happen. It’ll just mean that some of the residents and their neighbors are becoming farmers and using some of that agriculture to increase income and put money in their pockets.”
