    Can I ask for your help? The Westerville Chickens Keepers Society is trying to make our city council change it's mind about chickens. We are a small group of prochicken people trying to make hens legal in a suburb of Central Ohio.
    The whole idea of city chickens seems a bit odd to many of our neighbors. A letter from people like yourselves would be very persuasive, since you have hands on experience and have seen how it can work.

    Letters can go to:
    Mr. David Collinsworth
    Westerville City Manager
    21 South State Street

    Westerville, OH 43081

    If you feel like sending an email, a letter to the editor helps send the message very well:

    Quote:Crazy,right? Westerville is a very typical suburb that has many middle of the road types who are unaware and unable to admit their town had an agricultural past. There was feed store in the Uptown area that closed down due to lack of business-the bird feeder market had been propping them up.

    Cleveland's ordiannces are very progressive!
