Existing City Code does not permit chicken keeping in residential areas or any other parcel located in the city. However, there are residents who keep chickens and Animal Care Services regularly responds to chicken keeping and nuisance complaints. City staff has done some initial community outreach to interested parties.

The Law and Legislation Committee will take up this matter this afternoon at its 3pm meeting.
