Survey: Should Mar Vista host a pilot program to allow Urban Beekeeping in residential areas?

Feasibility Study on Urban Beekeeping in Mar Vista
The Mar Vista Community Council is currently doing a feasibility study on the possibility of a pilot program in Mar Vista to introduce legalized urban beekeeping. The study seeks to educate the community about the plight of honeybees, and to gauge stakeholders’ interests and concerns for such a program. Read more about why bee activists Chelsea and Rob McFarland brought this proposal to MVCC here.
The Mar Vista Community Council is considering a motion to support the creation of a pilot program by the City of L.A. that allows interested Mar Vista residents (in R1 zones) to keep up to two hives on their property. The MVCC has created a survey is to solicit stakeholder opinion regarding this proposal.
We need your feedback! Please complete this brief survey to share your thoughts and concerns.
New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Portland, Denver, Spokane, Atlanta, Chicago, Toronto, Vancouver, and most recently, Santa Monica have all taken decisive action and legalized beekeeping. Following the completion of the feasibility study, and after the survey has ascertained the interest of the Mar Vista community in such a project, the Mar Vista Community Council will vote on whether or not to pursue permission with the City of LA to implement an urban beekeeping pilot program in Mar Vista.
