Can I have a stable?

If the property is zoned Single-Family Residential (R-1): A private stable is allowed as an accessory use providing the stable has stalls and feed for every horse and is located at least fifty (50) feet from a property line. The stable and exercise area must be located on a lot of at least one (1) acre, be located in the rear yard, and be screened from adjoining residential lots.

If the property is zoned Agricultural Preservation (A-P) or Agricultural General (A-G): A private stable is allowed providing that any such structure built to accommodate horses must be located in the rear yard, provided there is also a residence, and at least fifty (50) feet from all property lines. A public stable is allowed with a special use permit where the building and exercise yard is at least 500 feet from the closest neighbor’s residence or residential zoning district.
