Amend the bill by striking out the title and substituting the following:

‘An Act To Provide for Edible Landscaping in a Portion of Capitol Park’

Amend the bill by striking out everything after the enacting clause and before the summary and inserting the following:

Sec. 1. 3 MRSA §902, sub-§1-B  is enacted to read:

1-B Edible landscaping.   The commission shall arrange for and oversee the development and implementation of a plan to incorporate food-producing plants, shrubs or trees into the landscaping of a portion of Capitol Park. Use of edible landscaping must be consistent with the overall plan for the park under section 902-A, subsection 2 and is subject to available funding for the park.


This amendment is the majority report of the committee. It strikes the bill and directs the State House and Capitol Park Commission to arrange for and implement a plan to incorporate food-producing landscaping into a portion of Capitol Park. The amendment requires that the plan be consistent with the plan for Capitol Park developed by the Olmsted Brothers firm in 1920, as revised, and be subject to available funding.
