I emailed the mayor and heard back from Director of Planning and Zoning:
The Village of Wauconda has in place an ordinance that restricts the raising of farm animals to those parcels within the Village boundaries that are zoned “Agriculture.”
The following is the definition for this type of zoning:
“AGRICULTURE. The tilling of the soil, the growing of crops or plant growth of any kind, including forestry, the maintenance of nonretail greenhouses and nurseries; the raising of livestock, poultry and customary farm animals for the purpose of farming; provided, that such activity is incidental to and subordinate to the tilling of the soil; and incidental structures for carrying out the above.”
If you have any further questions, please contact me.
