Yea! I was at a well attended Spokane Valley Planning Commission meeting this past Thursday. Plenty of pro-chicken people showed up to speak. Currently in the city of Spokane Valley, "backyard" chickens are only allowed on residential parcels of 1 acre or more. After the meeting, the planning commission is going to recommend to the Spokane Valley City Council to amend the regulations to allow up to 25 hens (no roosters) on lots less than one acre, allowing 1 chicken per 2000sq ft, and that housing structures be located at least 25 ft from neighboring structures (not property lines). Of course the City Council will still have to vote to approve the amendment, but it seems to have a lot of positive momentum!
