Hello! I'm quite new to this site [only joined yesterday!] and l would like to work on expending the Tampa ordinance [backyard chickens are allowed in tampa, but not the rest of the county!] to include all of the county. I haven't found any recent posts for it, nothing within the last year. I have found a few, but all are generally older. I am determined to get this changed! I would love to have a small flock of chickens to call my own, without the risk of someone deciding they didn't like them and turning me in. https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/tampa-florida-chicken-ordinance http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/hillsborough-county-citizens-for-backyard-poultry.html These links are some of the information I've already gathered. I looked into the county legal site, and it seems the only way to speak to them is by actually attending a meeting, But I'd want to have someone championing the petition. the existence of the petition is meaningless if no one knows about it. this petition states several valid points, so it's a good point of reference. The Tampa ordinance is to bring up so that the specifics have already been written up, and the only change is to expand the range of that ordinance. I could use all the help I can get, so if any Hillsborough residents want to help make a change, I'm all ears. Thank you!
