Please take a look. One of the strangest things is that water and food need to be given every 12 hours. That's silly. You need to have your home inspected before a license can be issued. And the worse, is that the "inspector" can determine if there is anything else that would be of concern that would not allow a license to be given in addition to many other things. There is also something that says that the enclosure needs to be cleaned daily so technically deep litter wouldn't be allowed.
The City's current ordinance allows livestock in some areas of Long Beach, but not in others. The Environmental Committee is considering an ordinance that may standardize the City's livestock ordinance throughout the City, and create new standards for allowing chickens, goats and bees in residential areas.
