  • No livestock such as cattle, swine, sheep, goats, or chickens are allowed on property of less than 3 acres.
  • It is unlawful for any premises to be in a filthy condition, create noxious or offensive smells, or be in a state to encourage the breeding of flies, rodents, or other vermin.
  • Property is to be maintained to a degree that would not cause offense or hazard to neighbors.  This includes keeping the property regularly mowed (below 12").  There is also to be no trash or materials that would create a littered condition such as the presence of dilapidated furniture, appliances, machinery, equipment, building material, or automobile parts, unless they are completely enclosed within a building or opaque screening.
