City Animal Regulations Ordinance Adopted:

On November 16, 2010 the City Council adopted new livestock, bee and exotic animal regulations for our community’s residential neighborhoods that became effective on December 16, 2010. These new regulations were shaped by an eight month long public participation process. Committed citizens with a wide range of opinions and ideas helped City staff craft regulations that reflected a cooperative community compromise. A big thank you and round of applause goes out to the City Animal Review citizen participants.




Permit Information:

Prior to keeping livestock or bees, the property owner needs to obtain an approved City Animal Permit. Click on the following link to download the City Animal Permit application form. There is a $25 fee to review the application. Staff review can generally be completed over the counter, unless a site visit is required.

Future beekeepers need to complete a Beekeeping Notification process prior to applying for a City AnAnimal-Slideshowimal Permit. Click on the following link to download the Beekeeping Notification Packet. There is a $25 fee to prepare the mailing labels and map for the applicant.
