What do you think about the expansion plans for the Tournament Capital Ranch? Since some of the land is part of the ALR, there are ideas about supporting sustainable farming on the ranch, including incubator farm for new farmers and an agriculture trade show and events center. We like those ideas!

Talk to the city at the farmers’ market booths on August 6 and 9, at an open house on August 14, or through their online survey. Go to the city’s website for more information.
