So here you go, a little something to keep handy regarding zoning and horse property in Riverside County:
RR: 5 mature horses per acre or any part thereof
A1: 5 mature horses per acre or any part thereof
A2: 5 mature horses per acre or any part thereof
W2: 5 mature horses per acre or any part thereof
RA: 2 mature horses on ea. 20,000 sf and 4 on first acre, 2 on each additional acre
Norco residents, or residential hopefuls....this one's for you:
The number of large animals allowed to be kept is controlled by zoning and lot size. The table below shows the number of animal units permitted on certain size lots in the A-1 zone:
||# of Animal Units
|20,000-24,999 sq. ft.
|25,000-29,999 sq. ft.
|30,000-34,999 sq. ft.
|35,000-39,999 sq. ft.
|40,000-44,999 sq. ft.
An animal unit is defined as either one horse, two mini-horses, two mini-mules, one cow, one swine, two sheep or two goats. Swine; however, are a special case, and only one swine is permitted for each 10,000 sq. ft. of property area. All large animals must be kept (fed, sheltered or watered) at least 35 feet from any adjacent dwellings. Four dogs are permitted per residence, regardless of the size of the property.
Just a little cheat sheet to keep handy, enjoy!
