The new ordinance will allow backyard beekeeping hobbyists, in general, to keep two hives within 25 feet of roads and property lines, 35 feet from neighboring homes and 150 feet from sensitive sites — places where there may be small children, the elderly, confined animals or others that might be physically challenged.

Small commercial beekeeping companies would be allowed to have up to 20 hives within 50 feet of roads and property lines, 100 feet from homes and between 150 feet and 300 feet from sensitive sites depending upon their number of hives.
