Backyard Beekeeping in LA City Update 8/11/15

LA City Planning Commission   By Katherine Peterson   August 11, 2015
As you know, the City Planning Commission approved the proposed Backyard Beekeeping Ordinance provisions at their regular meeting on May 14, 2015, and recommended to the City Council that it adopt the backyard beekeeping ordinance as shown on Appendix A of the Staff Report (http://planning.lacity.org/Code_Studies/beekeeping/StaffReport.pdf.  
Audio of the CPC meeting on May 14, 2015 is available online:  http://planning.lacity.org/MeetingsNHearings/Dsp_Results_CPC.cfm?Subtype=Agendas 
 
What's Next
The next step will be to present the proposed Backyard Beekeeping Ordinance provisions to the Planning and Land Use Management Committee (PLUM) of the City Council. PLUM reviews all planning-related matters. The Department of City Planning does not have control over the timing/scheduling of PLUM meetings, but will provide updates as we receive them.
 
Currently, City Council offices are working to schedule this ordinance for PLUM on August 25th, 2015, although this is not yet certain. We will send another email to this interest list when a date has been scheduled.
