Can anyone point me in the direction of an "APPEAL TEMPLATE" to get ordinances changed? I am distraught. I looked and looked for weeks online, municode, etc and could not find any concrete information about keeping chickens in my city. Started building a wonderful run, getting so excited and SLAM ! "It is unlwaful to keep horses, cattle, mules, donkeys, sheep goats, swine, pigeons, or fowl in residential areas". This is terrible. I have done some research and have found some good city comparisons to submit to the county upon my appeal - there are some much larger and more heavily populated metropolitan areas around me (Tampa, St Petersburg, Orlando) where chickens are allowed. The real kick in the gut: 2 blocks from my house is zoned as residential-agricultural, and I could throw a stone from my backyard to a chicken-safe zone, but I cannot keep them by law. Does anyone have a well worded template to submit to county officials with an appeal for code changes?? Thank you!
