    To all Denver chicken owners/lovers/advocates:

    Please save the date for the upcoming City Council Public Hearing (and final vote) on the proposed Food Producing Animals ordinance. The ordinance would allow you to keep up to 8 hen chickens/ducks with only a one-time, low-cost Animal Control license (instead of our current expensive, bureaucratic dual permitting system). To read the proposed ordinance, click here: http://bit.ly/ebExfI

    City
    Council Public Hearing
    Monday, June 13th
    5:30pm - ?
    City & County Building (14th & Bannock)

    Even if you don't want to testify at the public hearing, it is *crucial* that everyone in Denver who supports this measure show up for the hearing. "Pack the hearing" is the best advice the pro-FPA City Councilmembers have for us. There will be an opportunity during the testimony for everyone in the room who supports the measure to stand, so your presence will be noted.

    We will be coordinating testimony for the public hearing in the next couple of weeks. If you're interested in testifying, please contact me.

    Good luck! The only Fort Collins City Council meeting I've ever attended was the one to pass the chicken ordinance and the crowd was *heavily* weighted pro-chicken. [​IMG]

    Yea, we won! Of the 30 people who asked to speak, 28 wanted to legalize and 2 spoke against legalization (they were both older and I felt came across as crotchety). We did a good job packing the meeting with supporters!
