The City of Torrance is moving into community outreach segment of their review of allowing the keeping of bees and chickens, and I would like to enlist your help if possible. Right now there are two events scheduled that we would need to have some knowledgeable chicken and beekeepers attend. The first is a meeting of the Old Torrance Homeowners’ Association on March 19 at 7:00 PM in the Bartlett Center, Torrance. For this meeting the Environmental Quality staff will do a brief presentation regarding the proposed changes in the municipal code, and then would like to have some information presented by beekeepers and chicken owners. The City believes that when the residents can learn from people who are actively involved, they will be better able to make an informed decision about the code changes. The second event, and perhaps the most important, is their environmental fair which is set for June 7 from 10 to 2 at the City Yard in Torrance. The City is hoping that we can provide both a beekeeper booth and a chicken booth, and they will use the event to educate and get feedback to present to the Commission and Council. Please let me know if any of you group members would be willing to help us with these events. Thank you!
