To hen, or not to hen, that, is the question.

There is a growing national movement among people living in cities seeking to raise chickens and Meadows Place is now part of that national debate.  In August, the city received a request for clarification on whether or not residents could have chickens.   Yes, or No.   It is a simple question with what turned out to be a complicated answer that Mayor and Council were not happy with – and are determined to change and simplify.

After great debate there still was no answer, so, as feathers flew, the Mayor tabled a motion and instead called for a Chicken Committee to be formed in September with the goal of Council addressing the issue again in January of 2017.

“I am sure the Committee will not lay an egg” the Mayor laughed as Council agreed a citizen committee would provide the answers to Yes or No, how many is too many, free range or coop, require permit or no, etc.

The Mayor is asking any Meadows Place resident interested in serving on this committee, and it will be a working committee, to send your contact information to City Secretary Courtney Rutherford at:  crutherford@cityofmeadowsplace.org

Include any information you feel would be pertinent to being picked and put ‘Chicken Committee’ in the Subject line.  A five-member committee will be picked by September 20th, with the first organizational meeting to follow as soon as schedules will allow.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mayor Charles Jessup.
