For a preview of future potential City Council items visit the Agenda Look Ahead Page.


Town Chicken Regulations

The Town needs your input!

The Planning Commission is currently considering modifications to the Town's animal regulations to allow backyard chickens.  The current regulations allow chickens on properties that are at least 80,000 square feet in area (almost two acres). 

Chickens are not currently allowed on properties smaller than 80,000 square feet.  The Planning Commission is considering changing the regulations to allow backyard chickens regardless of property size.  Roosters will not be allowed.

To take the survey and provide your input please visit the topic on Open Town Hall.

The Planning Commission is scheduled to discuss the item further at its October 28, 2015 at 6:00pm meeting.
