The purpose of Chilliwack's Agricultural Area Plan is to define the City's role with respect to agriculture and identify appropriate policies and actions to support the viability of farming.  To minimize the impact of residential uses on farm land and farm activities, the Plan recommends establishing a farm home plate bylaw.  The City is therefore exploring options for regulating the siting and/or total area occupied by residential and associated uses on properties in the Agricultural Land Reserve.  Thank you for taking the time to answer this survey.  Your input will be used to analyze the most appropriate course of action for Chilliwack.
