I would really like to get a few chickens but have come across conflicting answers. I live in Lakeside Shores off of Forest Hill Blvd. if there is anyone in the area that knows the answer to this question please let me know.
Check out the Learning Center regarding raising chickens and the coops section. This is very helpful information up front while waiting to hear if you are permitted to own them. https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/
No person shall molest, harm, frighten, kill, net, trap, snare, hunt, chase, shoot or throw or propel, by any means, missiles at any wildlife creature, be it animal, bird or reptile roaming free about a park or in captivity in a zoo cage, nor shall any person remove or possess the young of any wild animal, or the nest or eggs of any reptile or bird, or collect, remove, possess, give away, sell or offer to sell, buy or offer to buy, or accept as a gift any specimen, dead or alive, of any of the group of tree snails.
But this section is very unclear but says nothing at about backyard chickens. it is talking about wild animals. The man on the phone said that it would be interpreted to mean that you cant have backyard chickens.
Most areas other than agricultural zoned areas are marked with a "C" for Conditional use.
Definition from sec 6.4.2
Conditional use. Uses identified in a particular district column with a "C" are "conditional uses" and shall be permitted in such district only if they are approved by the Village Council in accordance with the procedures and standards of Section 5.4.4 (Conditional uses), subject to such supplementary use standards as may be indicated in the "Note" column, and the other standards of this Code. Prior to receipt of a Certificate of Occupancy, all required permits from affected regulatory agencies must be obtained and the use must operate in accordance with those permits.
So it sounds like I need permission from my village council according to section 5.4.4. sure, but there is no published 5.4.4! It ends at sec. 18.104.22.168.
Ill leave an update if we are able to figure out approval.
