Discussion: Chicken Ordinance

In 2009, an ordinance was created to set parameters for those residents who met the requirements to have backyard chickens and other domestic birds. 

Most recently, City Council has requested a review of this ordinance to evaluate its effectiveness and determine if any changes need to be made. 

In moving the process forward, Planning Commission is now looking to collect input from the public. 

Current Ordinance - Section 15-2-24


City Council revisited the requirements of this specific code section and is further exploring the following in regards to the ordinance:

  • Whether the lot size threshold of two acres should be reduced;
  • If there should be a neighbor's approval added to the permit process;
  • Whether a certain number of permits should be issued within an implemented trial period; and
  • Any other issues or concerns. 

What do you think?
