Urban Agriculture

Fayetteville planning commissioners said Monday they want more details before signing off on ordinance changes to promote urban agriculture. The proposal would allow goats, bees and more chickens and ducks in non-agricultural zones.

Several commissioners said they want specific requirements for how large a beehive could be and how tall a fence must be to enclose animals. Commissioner Craig Honchell said neighbors should be notified if beehives are going in next door. Commissioner Tracy Hoskins said goats, in particular, should be confined to someone’s backyard. Planning commissioners will review the proposal Jan. 13.
