Long Beach Environmental Committee Meeting

The Long Beach City Environmental Committee has posted the recommended changes to the city code. Go to the attachment. http://longbeach.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=1321947&GUID=CE765177-D0C8-493F-9CC2-5EF47CB52933&Options=&Search=

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.

    Hey Roberta, I'll be there and am trying to draft a letter for others to customize and send if they can't make it.

      The letter would be great. We'll need personalized letters for the city council members. That's where it's going next.

    The results weren't perfect, but near enough to appease almost everyone.

    Ughhh, please support making these recommendations more reasonable. Inspection of your house before you can have a chicken or goat is crazy. And the city can decide if there is something not mentioned that would not allow a license to be given.

    I am eager to hear what the hidden new proposal is.

    Oh darn, I am out of town that weekend. I hope it passes and we can have chickens. The chickens need to be free roaming. Not caged. Most of us have too small yards for cages that have to be keep a certain distance from neighbors.
