I've been working with the Director of Planning for our town for a while to change the city code to allow 4 backyard hens. I went to the Zoning Board 2 weeks ago as a first step towards getting feedback on whether or not to proceed. The board recommended that the lawyer on retainer with the city draft an ordinance based on the ordinance for Madison, WI and was proposed but recently voted down in a local city. I started a Facebook page and have a few "likes" but just recently I got a request for an interview from the newspaper. Part of me is thinking "Great! let's get some visibility" but part of me is thinking that I should kind of stay on the downlow and fly as far under the radar as possible and avoid generating lots of publicity which could quickly generate more opposition than supporters. Any of you have experience with this? Thanks in advance.
