Ione Approves Small Amendment To The City Code

Ione Approves Small Amendment To The City Code

The Ione City Council dealt with a number of items of City business at its meeting last night. The Council approved a small amendment to the City Code, which will allow those with residential homes in the city's Transitional Commercial zone to keep and raise chickens the same as residential homes in other zones do.  You can raise up to 6 chickens at home in Ione, and up to 12 with a special permit.  The Council also received a report and discussed the recent approval of modification to a subdivision map for Castle Oaks Village Number 8. The map was changed to alter some lot sizes and shapes, as well as changing some road layout and to remove a gated enterance. It also reduced the number of lots from 100 to 93 homes.  The approval sets the stage for the next phase of development in the large Castle Oaks development project.  A proposed garbage rate increase was tabled for the next meeting to allow a clarification to contract language.
