Jaime Bouvier (Case Western) has posted How Cities Are Responding to the Urban Agriculture Movement with Micro-Livestock Ordinances (Urban Lawyer) on SSRN. Here's the abstract:
As the food movement grows, and more people care about how their food is produced, many are taking control by growing and producing it themselves. This includes raising animals like chickens, goats, and bees for eggs, milk, and honey. In response, cities are re-examining their zoning codes so that people who want to do so, can do so legally and in ways that can work in dense urban environments. This paper examines both the movement to raise micro-livestock in cities and cities that have created comprehensive micro-livestock ordinances to accommodate it.
