The city of Alamogordo is moving closer to legalizing beekeeping.

The city commission has taken steps to approve an ordinace that will allow people to keep bee hives on certain sized properties.

Beekeepers will have to register their hives with the city and notify their neighbors.

Those critical of the plan say it could endanger people who are allergic to bees.
