I'm rooting for y'all in Whittier! I hope you find success in changing the city ordinances. Luckily, I am in La Habra, which allows up to 20 mature birds, BUT....the coop needs to be set back 50 ft. from a domicile and 10 ft. from the property line. It's kind of a big BUT, because many properties don't have the size to be in compliance. So, for those considering a home in Whittier and wanting chickens, La Habra might be a good alternative.
