BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -
There may could be more horses in the City of Biloxi. That's because the city council could soon vote to change the current ordinance to allow more horses in the city.
"Under our current land development ordinance, in order to have horses on your property, you have to have agriculturally zoned property and you have to have at least three acres to have one horse," Community Development Director Jerry Creel said.
But this may soon change.
"We had a resident who requested, from Councilmen Fayard their property is currently zoned RE or RER, which is residential estate or residential estate restricted, and they would like to have horses on their property," Creel said. "What we are doing is, trying to expand the youth tables in this ordinance requesting that they be allowed in RE or RER," Creel said.
The new ordinance would allow for residents to own two horses if they have at least three acres of land and then another horse for each additional acre. The request has already gone before a public hearing in front of the planning commission.
"They didn't have a problem with it, they thought it was a reasonable request so their recommendation to approve it is going to the board for final approval," Creel said.
If the request gets approval, it will make it much easier for Biloxi residents to own horses.
"We would be able to just issue a permit rather than have to take them through a lengthy process in order to get special privileges," Creel said.
Neither Creel nor Councilman Fayard anticipate any problems when it goes before the city council. The issue is expected to be voted on at Tuesday's meeting on July 22.
