The Beekeepers Guild of San Mateo County was founded in 1979, and consists of an eclectic group of hobbyists, small-scale beekeepers and commercial beekeepers. Nicki Irvin will discuss the Guild’s policy recommendations for San Mateo County. Currently there are seven cities that restrict the keeping of bees, and San Carlos is one of them. The restrictions in San Carlos are an administrative process by way of a nuisance ordinance. The Guild has prepared an Analysis and Policy Recommendations for removal of the restrictions in this County, and Ms. Irvin will outline that document and answer questions. We will discuss what might be done to support the Guild in its efforts in San Carlos. For more information about the Guild, go to www.sanmateobeeguild.org
