|4 Chesapeake Hens at City Council|
Ike's resolution was adopted, with the lone "no" vote coming from Vice Mayor John de Triquet. Next the the Planning Commission will study whether changes should be made to the zoning laws regarding chickens.
We feel excited about it. We're making progress.
Now we are figuring out what to do next to keep the momentum going. Pat Foreman, the author of City Chicks, has offered to help us. Among other things, she is willing to make Chesapeake a stop on her next East Coast Book Tour. We will be happy to work with her!
Update: On November 20, Chesapeake City Council voted 6-3 to allow hens with certain restriction in residential areas.
