Backyard Chicken Ordinance

At the December 4, 2012, Village Council Meeting under New Business, the Village Council directed staff to prepare a report for discussion regarding potential amendments to the Municipal Code regarding fowl. The proposed potential changes would make Village regulations more permissive.

The purpose of this report is to respond to the issues and questions presented by Council and community members, and to provide alternatives that the Council could consider if there is a desire to amend the Village Code in a manner consistent with the proposal.
