Backyard Beekeeping Ordinance at CPC 5-14-15

May 10th, 2015

Update:  The City Planning Commission approved the proposed Backyard Beekeeping Ordinance provisions at their regular meeting yesterday, and has recommended to the City Council that it adopt the hillside regulations 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 will be available online within about a week:  http://planning.lacity.org/MeetingsNHearings/Dsp_Results_CPC.cfm?Subtype=Agendas

We expect to have a Commission Determination Letter prepared for transmittal to the City Clerk by the end of next week.

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 do everything it can to make sure that the City Clerk’s Office has everything it needs to schedule this item.

We will send an email to the interest list when a date has been determined.

====================

Attached is the City of Los Angeles Department of City Planning staff report to the City Planning Commission (CPC) regarding the proposed Backyard Beekeeping ordinance.

The proposed ordinance is scheduled for CPC for Thursday, May 14, 2015. Agendas for CPC can be found online:
