    Nice to be here. . , I began attending Durham Hen's meeting early last year in hopes of replicating their process for amending the City's chicken ban: meeting with the various Planning / Zoning Dept. entities, council members, advocates from neighboring areas that allow chickens (Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Wake Forest, etc,). Unaware that there was a Cary Chickens group, I was horrified to read in the paper, last July, that the concept had been brought up at a council meeting without (to my assumption), vetting the concept up through the municipal jungle of who would actually write and enforce the ordinances, etc.
    I've interacted with the Town of Cary (and most of the other Triangle entities) for years as a component of my profession (Landscape Architect) and each municipality has there own idiosyncrasies. Sorry, I'm digressing.
    I really just wanted to say hi and that I'm ready to help kick some hay on Academy Street.
    -Peace out

    Welcome from TX! And Cary is beautiful, I remember it from my marching band competition days. (the mall's bathrooms were the best place to get out of sweaty uniforms!) Kick some sense into those meddlers on Academy!
