Hi Glendale folks -- Congratulations!! I am so happy that all of your hard work has paid off.
We are in the process of trying to expand our ordinance to have hens on smaller properties. Our ordinance was put in place by someone disgruntled with a neighbor in the 1980s. So now 99% of our town (because of property size) cannot have hens.
We are trying to educate, but even after that we keep hearing from the opposing folks "I just don't want to have hens in Camp Hill".
What are some strategies for overcoming this resistance? Can you offer some advice?
Thanks so much!
