The San Leandro Municipal code prohibits residents from keeping animals, other than dogs, cats, potbellied pigs and caged birds at home. Animal husbandry is only permitted in the Mulford Gardens neighborhood of San Leandro. However, there is a growing movement, in particular in the north area, to change the code to allow residents throughout the city to keep chickens (but not roosters) and bees. Most cities around us make such allowances.
At the last City Council meeting the matter was sent to the Rules committee – though it’s a the bottom of their list. Council woman Souza complained that the Council had dealt with the matter a few years ago – she clearly doesn’t want it revisited. But what do you think? Should we allow chickens and bees in San Leandro? Answer the poll and add your comment below.
