Current zoning ordinance only allows chickens on property zoned Agricultural or Agricultural Holding (approximately 43% of the township, mostly farmland). I'm working on petitioning the Board of Supervisors to allow low density residential zones to raise a small flock of hens. I've perused the information available here (really enjoyed the study of 25 cities with backyard chicken allowances) and I've created a facebook group to organize the community. https://www.facebook.com/groups/514553395408308/ My plan is to use the site to draw attention to the issue and collect signatures for a petition. Once I reach a certain number of signatures, I'll forward the petition and a letter (based off of the successful letter posted here) to each Supervisor. At that point, I'm hoping the Board grants us some time at a monthly meeting to discuss. I've also reached out to a member of the local media who had previously written about backyard chickens. What else can/should I do to further the cause?
