The City of Glendale is looking at creating new regulations related to beekeeping.
Phoenix, Tempe, Queen Creek and Maricopa are among the Arizona municipalities that already have rules related to beekeeping.
A draft Glendale ordinance would require an adequate water supply, require a minimum available area of 6,000 square feet and allow one beehive per 1,700 square feet.
The beehives would have to be kept 200 feet from existing structures and 50 feet from a property’s boundaries.
The Glendale City Council will take a look at the issue during a meeting tonight (Sept. 14). City staff will also seek guidance from the council on whether to regulate beekeeping in residential areas as a hobby.
