City Council will be reviewing the Planning and Land Use Management Committee (PLUM) recommendation to move the proposed Backyard Beekeeping Ordinance to the City Attorney's Office at tomorrow morning's meeting -- 10 am, Item 15 on the agenda. The hearing for the ordinance was held during the PLUM meeting and it could go on consent (meaning that they can act on it without discussion), but a Councilmember can call it out for discussion. Planning staff will be present in case any questions arise. Call into Council Phone at (213) 621-2489 to listen to the meeting, or you can stream video of the meeting.
Welcome to the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association!
For over 130 years the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association has been serving the Los Angeles Beekeeping Community. Our group membership is composed of commercial and small scale beekeepers, bee hobbyists, and bee enthusiasts. So whether you came upon our site by design or just 'happened' to find us - welcome! Our primary purpose is the care and welfare of the honeybee. We achieve this through education of ourselves and the general public, supporting honeybee research, and practicing responsible beekeeping in an urban environment.
"The bee is more honored than other animals, not because she labors, but because she labors for others." Saint John Chrysostom
