Banning, CA

Section 6.02.0160 of the Animal Code is amended in its entirety to read as follows:
No person, either as owner, agent or employee, shall keep any roosters, peacocks, or pigeons, doves, ducks, or other birds or fowl, domestic or otherwise within the City of Banning with the exception of the zoning districts in which the fowls are permitted by Chapter 17.40 of the Banning Zoning Code.
(Ord. No. 1437, § 1, 3-8-11)



The purpose of these standards is to clearly define the numbers of animals allowed in each of the Zoning districts. The Animal Keeping Standards are intended to:

Allow the keeping and raising of animals on lots of sufficient size to accommodate a larger number of animals.
Preserve the enjoyment of their land by all property owners.
(Zoning Ord. dated 1/31/06, § 9110.01.)
The provisions of this chapter shall apply to all zoning districts included in Division II of this Zoning Ordinance, including both existing and new or redeveloped projects, and single family homes, regardless of when they were constructed.
(Zoning Ord. dated 1/31/06, § 9110.02.)
Animals may be kept in the residential districts only. The keeping of animals on lands designated for commercial, industrial or public facilities uses is prohibited, except for pet stores and veterinary facilities as permitted in the commercial districts.
The keeping of animals shall conform to the following table:
