    Will you be able to attend the McHenry IL "PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION MEETING" on Thursday, September 8, 2011 at 7:30 p.m at the Municipal Center / City Hall?

    They will be discussing a "Text Amendment to the zoning ordinance regarding residential chickens". Most of the hurdles out there have been overcome, but this portion of the meeting IS listed as a "Public Hearing", so the more people the better! I won't be able to attend as I work 2nd shift.
