The boyfriend and I recently bought our first house, I contacted City Hall about local ordinances; They informed me: "The City of Wayne does not allow backyard chickens unless you have 1/2 acre lot which is not many yards in the City." This was disappointing to me and I started looking up "how to" petition a city ordinance. After some research, I found out about the MRTFA, which sounds great on so many levels...There's a great forum on this site dealing with that, thanks everyone =) https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/182280/michigan-right-to-farm-law-what-does-it-mean BUT, what I really want to do, is change the City Ordinance, because I believe everyone should be able to raise chickens and provide for their family without going thru the fuss of creating an LLC or "selling" for profit...Problem is, I'm not sure how to start the process of amending a city ordinance or create a petition. I don't own any chickens....yet. Any ideas or suggestions?
