On January 14, 2014, the Village Council met in a workshop meeting to discuss potential amendments to Chapter 5 of the Municipal Code that would allow more residents to keep chickens on their property than what is currently allowed in the code. Staff has prepared the following memo/report to provide further information regarding options for allowing more residential properties to become eligible to keep chickens. 

This memo will be discussed at the March 18, 2014 Village Council meeting.
