The backyard chicken debate will reach a new level Monday night. The group “Poultry for PG” will be making it’s case before City Council.
Over the past few months the group has collected more the 150 physical signatures and 500 online in support of backyard chickens.
The current zoning bylaw prohibits residents within city limits from keeping poultry in their backyard.
The group advocating for backyard chickens says its a great way to cut costs and teach children about wildlife.
Poultry for PG’s Laura Lawrence says the plan Monday night is simple.
“We’re going to be presenting to council, we’re going to be asking them to change it so that we can have 6 or less hens on properties that are two thousand square metres or less in city limits.”
Other items on council’s docket include a report from the Superintendent of the RCMP. As well as Council being asked to support a bid for the 2022 Summer games. Council has already approved a bid for the 2020 BC Summer Games.
