Chickens Come Home to Roost

The Winter Park City Commission is scheduled to vote this coming Wednesday, December 14th, on modifications to the “backyard chicken” ordinance. If you want to approve backyard chickens next to your home I suggest you let the commission know now:

The revised ordinance as proposed REMOVES the requirement that applicants obtain written approval for the keeping of chickens on their premises from abutting property owner(s).

There was significant push-back when this ordinance was proposed in 2020 that resulted in adding the neighbor approval requirement. Removing it now does not seem wise. Let the commission know your views on this issue.
