LITTLETON, Colorado-New regulations that go into effect later this month will allow some residents in Arapahoe County to keep bees and raise chickens in their backyards.

The Arapahoe County Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved the new rules following a two-year process seeking feedback and addressing concerns of residents, a press release from the county says.

“No special licenses are required for backyard chickens or beekeeping,” the release says. “Residents must adhere to the adopted regulations and may need a building permit for certain improvements.”
