Good afternoon all! Please get the word out and write, call, completely bombard your AACO Councilmen!! A new bill was introduced to ALLOW chickens in Anne Arundel County MD. This bill was introduced on September 16th 2013. Basically, the bill will allow 4 chickens on a 10,000 SF lot and 8 chickens on a 20,000 SF lot. No roosters. There are a few other minor changes and minimum coop size restrictions but they are looking to allow them. It still seems that there isn't much hope for it to pass according to the two councilmen who introduced the bill but maybe we can change that if we rally the support! Public TESTIMONY: October 21st at 7:00 (PM I assume) They need 4 votes to pass. Hopefully the two councilmen introducing the legislation are onboard but we still need to convince at least two more Link to proposed legislation: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1ay5k0utnmsbl01/79 13 Chicken Legislation.pdf Here is a link to the council districts in our county: http://www.aacounty.org/Elections/CouncilMaps.cfm#.UjxvHBaTPJw Districts 5 and 6 are the ones introducing the bill. I will try to PM everyone on here that has mentioned living in AACO. Good luck to us! I will do what I can but I really hope folks out there can really spread the word on all forms of social media and don't forget to physically contact your council members!!!
