Residents buzzing over urban beekeeping approval
“Traverse City officials approved a proposal to allow urban beekeeping within the city on Monday night.
Commissioners voted to amend zoning rules which will allow city residents to have up to two honey bee colonies or hives per property. The idea was initially brought up in may by a group of interested community members.
Since then, the commission says they have done a lot of research on the practice. Community members at Monday night’s meeting were very supportive of the idea and are happy with the outcome.”
