Hillsborough County, Florida...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Greetings!

 

  I live in Hillsborough County, Florida, and am pursuing a change in the wording of our land use code to allow for "backyard chickens" on residential zoned properties in the county.  At the moment, our land use code does not permit livestock (including poultry) on residential property in the county.  I hope to fix that problem.  If anyone out there has any documents that would help my cause, I'd appreciate any advice/documents that show positive reasons for backyard poultry.

 

Also, check out a little project I completed for my own coop:  https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=470706806302128&l=2471557135303728603

 

Looking forward to hearing your advice!

 

Thanks;

Don

I have made a reply in regards to this petition, of which I have already had more than 20 people sign, only to find out the petition will go nowhere unless people are able to do what is said at the bottom of my reply over in another thread. I contacted Bonnie, the creator of the petition and I have her reply at the end of my post:
