City to Host Public Meeting April 5 to Discuss Bee Ordinance
The City of Lee’s Summit will host a public meeting on April 5 at 6 p.m. via Zoom to discuss the future of the City’s ordinance regarding beekeeping.
The City’s current ordinance states, “It shall be unlawful to keep or harbor any bees in the City except in agricultural areas and four hundred (400) feet from inhabitants other than the owners thereof. Any beehive used or occupied by bees in violation of this section is hereby declared to be a nuisance.”
The public meeting will focus on types of hives, permits and licenses and a reduction in the distance from the hives to a residence.
For questions or to register for the meeting, email Rodney Wagner at Rodney.Wagner@cityofLS.net.
