Are horses allowed within city limits?

Yes, in some areas with a valid permit and certain restrictions. Effective September 2023, personal animal raising is allowed in the city with application and site plan approval. In the RR Rural Residential zoning district, any lot 2 acres and over may keep one horse or other equine/hoofed animal and its immature offspring. Such lot may have one additional animal per additional acre of lot area. No stable shall be located closer than 50 feet to any dwelling unit on the site or property line. In the AG district horses are permitted with no restrictions. In all other districts, horses are not allowed. Please contact the zoning administrator with questions or to discuss submittal requirements.
