Indiana Bee-related Zoning Ordinances

In support of beekeepers across Indiana, TBoI has partnered with Indiana legislators to draft legislation that supports beekeeping throughout the state. Public Law 193 (passed 2 May 2019) and Public Law 159 (passed 13 Mar 2024) prohibit restrictions against beekeeping in municipalities and HOA-managed neighborhoods, respectively. Public Law 159 includes include guidance that can be leveraged in the establishment of new ordinances in Indiana municipalities or Restrictive Covenants (or amendments thereto) for HOA-managed neighborhoods.
