The City wants to learn more about what people think about bee keeping. Currently, cities like Minneapolis allow residential bee keeping with a permit and some restrictions. Bees are a vital part of our food system, pollenating plants and flowers. However, the numbers of bees has declined dramatically due to the overuse of pesticides, diseases and parasites. Residential bee keeping could help re-stabilize bee populations.
Note: The City is not proposing a change at this time. By using this online discussion, feedback on topics will be compiled and given to the City Council as informational only.
