    We are considering a house within city limits in Cleveland GA. Does anyone know the laws/ordinances there? Thanks!

    Here are the city ordinances:

    A good thing to look over would be the animal ordinances and the zoning section. Within city limits, it looks as though only R3 Residential-Agricultural zones are permitted livestock, so long as facilities are at least 300 feet from property lines. That would require quite a large plot. Good luck!
