    I just found out that my city in Ohio a suburb of Cleveland does not allow urban chickens..How do I go about changing the ordinance which was created in 1970...Cleveland allows beekeeping and chickens and we are less than a mile from Cleveland city limits...how do I get the ordinance changed??

    Hello there and welcome to BYC!

    I have never had to get any laws changed. However you might stop by this section of our forums, Local Chicken Laws and How to Change Them to see if you can glean some info from others on this....https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/37/local-chicken-laws-ordinances-and-how-to-change-them

    You might also stop by your state thread and chat with your chicken neighbors on what the Ohio laws are and how to get things changed in your state...https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/12049/ohio-come-on-buckeyes-let-me-know-your-out-there

    Good luck and I hope you can get those laws changed soon!
