The Chicken Research Committee consisted of Meadows Place residents- Charles Kulhanek(Chairman), Cinda English, Katie North, David Cosby, Chris Peek and Mary Milner. I thank them for all the research and hard work they put in on our behalf.
As Mayor, I reminded both the Committee, and the Council, that these results were non-binding and are but one of many matters to be taken into consideration when Council deliberates whether or not to pass an ordinance regarding laying hens in Meadows Place.
The committee recommendations were: 4 in favor of allowing laying hens in Meadows Place; 1 against; and 1 in favor of the city not addressing the issue at all since deed restrictions currently cover the topic. The recommendations to Council included several restrictions as well.
The City of Meadows Place, and Meadows Place Economic Development Corporation, are supporting the three man rowing team of Mike Matson, David Alviar & Brian Krauskopf. They have rowed their 22 ft. rowboat over 2000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean already. Mike Matson was a firefighter who served the Meadows Place Fire station and worked with Anne Sullivan when she was stationed at Meadows Place. The boat is named Anne after the firefighter who died in the line of duty. .
The team left La Gomera off the coast of Morocco on Dec. 16th, 2016, bound for English Harbour, Antigua in the West Indies. They have weathered high winds, big waves, rain and sun but are still rowing hard. They are still on their own on the ocean and at the mercy of the wind, waves, storms another 400 miles. The City of Meadows Place Facebook page has regular postings as the race progresses. Please follow along and support – The American Oarsmen
Please join the Active Adults Program (over 50) every Monday from 10:00 to 1:00 at the Community Center. A wide variety of crafts, programs, speakers and field trips are offered. Come be a part of the fun !!

Participating from Meadows Place were Mayor Jessup, Police Chief Gary Stewart, Public Works Director Danny Segundo, Finance Director Anna-Maria Weston, Parks Director Colene Cabezas and City Secretary Courtney Rutherford.
