I just found out that in Douglas County, Colorado, where previously you had to have 2.3 acres to have any chickens in most parts of the county, is planning to revise their zoning to make 4 hens OK for any size property! Here is the info in case anyone is interested in attending the public hearing... Hurray - my girls hopefully won't be outlaws for much longer! Request for Review: Section 24, Animals Section 36, Definitions Once comments have been received and reviewed, the proposed revisions will be modified as appropriate and a formal recommendation will be prepared for the Planning Commission. The public hearing before the Planning Commission is tentatively scheduled for March 26, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. and the public hearing before the Board of County Commissioners is tentatively scheduled for April 24, 2012, at 2:30 p.m. Notice will be provided in the newspaper 14 days prior to the hearings. A public workshop to review the proposed revisions is scheduled for February 1, 2012, at 4:00p.m. in the Community Planning and Sustainable Development Offices, Suite 220, 100 Third Street, Castle Rock, CO 80104. Please contact me at 303-660-7460 or [email protected] if you plan to attend the workshop. Synopsis of Proposed Amendments: The full text of the proposed amendments can be obtained by contacting this office, or by accessing the Douglas County website at: http://www.douglas.co.us/planning/Whats_New_-_Hot_Topics.html The proposal is summarized as follows: · The revision includes changing sections of the DCZR to allow female chickens to be kept as household pets by the occupant of a residential unit and to clarify that pot-bellied pigs are already allowed to be kept as household pets.
