Seeking Public Input Regarding Chicken Ordinance Revision(s)

At the May 14th Board of Health meeting, citizens interested in revising the current chicken ordinance were in attendance to support a revision that would allow residents with less than 1/2 acre of land to raise chickens inside the city of Columbia. Current ordinance allows one chicken per 1/2 acre of land inside the city limits. Please share your comments in regards to a possible chicken ordinance revision.
