The Turkey Police Are Coming

Disturbing developments are afoot with regarding to urban agriculture. After all the hard work we’ve done to get this to mayor and council, there is yet again a small group of people trying to make it appear there is widespread opposition to the proposed changes.

Where have those voices been all along? They claim they have been “bullied” into submission, which is patently false, as there’s been many opportunities for public input, and ample invitation from City Staff to comment. In this last ditch effort, their big goal is to reduce the number of animals allowed, and they’ve got the ear of at least one City Councilor, in Ward 6.

Can you help us one last time?? Here’s how:

  1. Send an email or make a phone call to the ward councilors and/or mayor with your comments. Ward member info is here. A sample letter for you to sign is here.
  2. Show up at the meeting and express your support for allowing more urban agriculture, specifically the right to have 24, 36, or, on really huge lots, 48 chickens. More info on how the animal units would work is here. Meeting info is below.
  3. Show up at the meeting, and simply wear one of our awesome chicken buttons.  Limited edition buttons in a new color will be available!  (See here.)
  4. Share this blog post on Facebook or with specific friends, asking them to take action.
