Does the City allow farm animals?
Yes. City and County zoning are the same regarding farm animals (with one small exception, explained below). The City’s “R-S-12” and “R-S-20” zones have the same farm animal rules as the County’s “RS-20” zone, with one farm animal “unit” allowed for every 10,000 sq. feet of property beyond 12,000 sq. feet of lot area (one animal unit is typically 1 horse, 1 cow, 3 sheep or 20 chickens). For example, a lot with 32,000 square feet would be permitted to have two horses, whether in the City or County. The City does limit the total number of chickens, ducks, or rabbits to 40.
