Dear SCBA Members, Families and Friends
Please, see below important information that involves beekeepers throughout the City of Akron as well as surrounding counties. We would love to have your support!
You may have read and heard recent news coverage about this ordinance:
Start at minute 40.49
Summit County Beekeepers Association, Inc. is joined by Ohio State Beekeepers Association, Inc., and Pollinator Stewardship Council, Inc. in support of reasonable, realistic changes to this ordinance. Mayor Dan Horrigan has withdrawn the proposed changes to the ordinance, but the ordinance needs modifications to reflect best management practices in beekeeping as well as best management for the other livestock included in this ordinance.
Beekeepers wish to join with and support our fellow urban agricultural stakeholders in working with
the City of Akron to ensure a realistic and reasonable ordinance.
Greg Bokan, President, Summit County Beekeepers Association, Inc.
Terry Lieberman-Smith, President, Ohio State Beekeepers Association, Inc.
Michele Colopy, Program Director, Pollinator Stewardship Council, Inc.
