A note about raising chickens …

Keeping chickens is becoming more popular among city residents. The City’s ordinance requires anyone considering doing this to first apply to the City Commission for approval. The application must include a letter stating how many chickens the resident will own and the type of coop they will be housed in. We also recommend you speak to neighbors and ask if they have any issues with having chickens nearby. A letter of support from neighbors is helpful when the City Commission considers these requests.
