Disgusted by chicken law in Sacramento County - Page 2

IT'S TIME TO SPEAK UP OR GIVE UP YOUR CROWING FOWL

 

Once this zoning change becomes finalized, it isn't going to be easy to get our property rights returned. If you zoned (AR), Ag Residential, you may not be as safe from this ban as you think. Roberta MacGlashan the District 4 Supervisor, (see map:http://www.bos.saccounty.net/District4/Documents/District4Map.pdf was talking about applying the ban to your residential zoning category as well. And what other animals or livestock are they going to ban next? Also, please note that other zoning changes were voted on regarding pens, coops, fences, walls, etc.

 

The Sacto County Supervisors want to see an angry hoard (so to speak) as Serna hinted at during the July 22nd meeting. Don't give up your male fowl or your property rights! We are asking anyone interested in attending a planning meeting to send me a private message. Please include your zip code and dates/times you are available and we'll figure out a location/date/time that fits everyone's needs as best we can.

 

The Supervisors will revisit the crowing fowl section of their zoning amendments “tentatively” on:

Wednesday October 28, 2015, 2:30 PM to 6:00 PM, Board Chambers, 700 H Street, 1st floor, in Suite 1450, Sacramento, CA 95814.

 

Contact: Kevin Romo, 916-874-8178 to confirm meeting agenda, date/time.

OR

Call, write, email, tweet or Facebook all five Supervisors and tell them

what you think.

I am very pleased with the out come. Though moving forward it is a great shame that those individuals living on lots smaller than 10,000 sq feet are still not allowed to raise chickens. How can we change the ordanince as to allow more people to benefit from raising chickens?

I don't know but hope in time more people will see the benefit of chickens in the yard. I figure if you are willing to try to keep them on less acreage just hope your neighbors like you & like free eggs. Maybe that's the chicken's way into more yards! People always love free stuff!
