The Jeffco Planning Commission voted 4-2 on March 6 to allow chickens and bees to be kept in residential-zoned areas in unincorporated Jefferson County.
The changes would allow up to six chickens and one hive at homes in all residential zones, as long as the lot size is a minimum of 4,000 square feet and the owner meets other requirements on the housing and placement of the birds and bees.
The board members who cast the no votes, chairman Larry Anna and Tim Rogers, both expressed concern about an exception to setback rules for chicken coops.
