Chickens Tabled For Two Weeks
August '12 9
The chicken ordinance was tabled at the August 9th council meeting. It will be revisited in two weeks, when the new council member will be sworn in.
We thought we were in the clear, as did Gale, Lori, and Don. We were all blindsided by Jennifer Robinson changing her mind about supporting chickens. Jennifer previously voted in favor of chickens during every previous council meeting for the past four years, including the one that sent this very ordinance that she couldn’t support to planning and zoning.
Jennifer mentioned that she recently heard more support opposed to chickens and almost none in favor. Clearly, we should not have encouraged everyone to not bug council too much because several council members told us this was a done deal. The 9-0 vote by planning & zoning helped re-enforce the idea that this would pass. We were wrong and need to let her know that we are still here and want legal chickens.
I encourage you all to contact Cary council member Jennifer Robinson. Let her know that you want her to vote in favor of chickens, and ask her to explain why she would support this issue for four years and unexpectedly oppose it.
If you email her, CC firstname.lastname@example.org so that it goes to all council members and is not lost to the public record.
