Dan Brown's chronicling his efforts to make urban chickens legal in Fort Collins, Colorado (pop ~130,000,see larger map) over on his blog Fort Collins Urban Hens.
So far, he's made it through the Planning and Zoning board (5-2 vote), and now it's on to the City Council for a vote.
I especially like his call to action to mobilize folks to show up at the Council meeting to make their voices heard:
Looking forward to seeing the turnout he gets at the meeting on June 3. Here's hoping Dan (and the urban chicken movement in Ft Collins) is successful!
Now I really need help getting to the next step. If you want to support this initiative, I need people to:
1. Get the word out to the community - get conversations going to educate others about urban hens. Feel free to use my slideshow.
2. Contact your City Council representative - you can find your rep here: http://www.fcgov.com/council/?departments
3. Contact me with your suggestions or questions -
