A. A minimum of two (2) acres for large domestic animals is required. This includes any horse, mule, donkey, pony, sheep or goat. An exception is made for sheep or goats that are temporarily being kept for school activities or showings.
B. Every such building, stable, or fenced enclosure, must be a minimum of one hundred feet (100') from any tenement or apartment house, hotel, restaurant, boarding house, retail food store, building used for educational, religious, or hospital purposes or residence other than that occupied by the owner or occupant of the premises upon which such animal is kept. If located within two hundred feet (200') of any of the above, a watertight and fly tight receptacle for manure, of such size as to hold all accumulations of manure must be provided. The receptacle shall be emptied sufficiently often and in such manner as to prevent it from being or becoming a nuisance, and shall be kept covered at all times except when open during the deposit or removal of manure or refuse. No manure shall be allowed to accumulate on such premises except in the receptacle. (Ord. 12-11-2, 11-5-2012)
