Can I keep horses on my property?

The keeping of horses and other livestock is allowed on R-L, R-1, R-2 and R-3-zoned properties in the City, provided you have enough land area. To even consider having a horse in R-1, R-2 and R-3 zones, your lot or parcel has to be at least 1 acre. R-L zoning requires at least 15,000 square feet of land. There are other requirements in Chapter 17.20.114 of the Zoning Regulations with respect to numbers of animals, care-taking and fencing. View also Chapter 17.08 for a definition of “livestock”.
