We had our hearing last night for the special use permit I applied for to keep my chickens. Mine was a new permit but up on the agenda before me was a renewal permit request. Unfortunately the planning commission voted to revoke her permit due to one lousy neighbor of hers so I was a bit worried when it came time for mine. Being a first permit request with no complaints from neighbors they passed mine but only for a one year time frame. Guess that gets my foot in the door. Now my permit just has to go to city council for final approval in a few weeks but it looks like I will get to keep my girls. And the other woman who was denied will get to plead her case to the council that night as we'll. fingers are crossed for her. Once this permit is past me I would like to find several more olathe chicken enthusiasts so we can rally together and try to change the ordinance.
