The city is such a pain with this regulation. I grew up in California on 1/2 acre and had a backyard farm. Chickens, ducks, two turkeys and a pigmy goat. We had no smell issues because we kept everything clean. I would love nothing more than to raise chickens with my kids just like I was able to do growing up. I live on 1/4 acre in a quiet neighborhood with a fenced in backyard. I think it is crazy that Mentor criminalizes keeping a few chickens. If there is any movement on this, I would love to be a part of it. I am willing to sit in on a city council meeting, help get signatures ect... but I think we need to show the city that a lot of us want to see this change and that most neighbors would not be bothered by it.
