Council to Vote on Urban Animal Keeping

EUGENE, Ore. — Eugene city councilors will likely make a decision on the urban animal keeping ordinance Wednesday.

The current proposal would allow for people to have more chickens, goats and bee hives, among other animals.

According to the agenda item, for development sites less than 20,000 square feet, the ordinance would do the following: increase the number of goats from two to three; increase the number of bee hives from two to three; decrease the setback for bee hives from 15 feet to five feet; and, require the hive opening to point toward the center of the property.

The city manager suggested the council approve the ordinance that’s on the table.

The council’s meeting is Wednesday, Feb. 20 at noon in Harris Hall, located in the Lane County Public Service Building at 125 E. Eighth Ave.
