Whereas, pursuant to the Constitution of the State of Iowa and to Chapter 364 of the Code of Iowa, Maharishi Vedic City possesses home rule powers, not inconsistent with the laws of the State of Iowa; and

Whereas, Maharishi Vedic City has taken pride in being an all-organic city and this character of the city has been maintained on a voluntary basis by all the owners of residential, agricultural, and commercial property in the City.

Whereas, organic agriculture, including production, processing and distribution, is a cornerstone of the City’s plans for economic development. Further the organic character of the city is an attraction for tourism and for new residents.
