There’s a buzz around city hall that could soon spread to the rest of Winnipeg.
A new bylaw has been drafted that would allow urban beekeeping in all zoning districts.
Beekeeping is currently allowed in the downtown area only.
Under the new bylaw people would need a permit to have bees.
Property owners would be allowed up to five hives depending on the size of the lot.
The hives must be surrounded by a fence that is at least six feet high with a secured gate.
The city’s property and development committee will vote on the new law next week.
