A resident has requested and filed for a zoning code change, which would allow up to 6 chickens in residential areas with a lot size of at least 15,000 square feet. It also permits a chicken coup with certain criteria. Current zoning code only allows chickens or non-domesticated or farm animals in agriculturally zoned properties.
A presentation was made to the Planning Commission on 8/6/2020. The chicken presentation is the first issue addressed on the video. Please view the video for further details on the requirements and presentation material. See Link to video below.
