Date Change: Oct. 5th is New Hearing

25 09 2010

Ugh. We’re tired of waiting, but the City moves (very) slow. It turns out they needed more time to work on their report in the impacts of legalizing urban chickens. Crazy seeing as how we put together a comprehensive report and legal review of relevant  city code a year ago on the topic and presented it to them. And crazy since it is unlikely that legalizing them  will not have much of any fiscal or noticeable impact.

But let’s not get ourselves down…they are actually moving forward. The City Council’s Law and Leg Committee (Councilmembers Hammond, Sheedy, Cohn and Waters) will take up the issue of legalizing backyard chickens on Oct. 5th in the Council Chambers at 3pm.

Also, we have lots of new t-shirts in green, red, and grey, in cuts for men and women. Contact us at info(at)eatsacramento(dot)org to order one for $15 today!


Join us for a hearing on Sept. 21st!

Quiet, please. So we’ve all been waiting for this moment for over a year now….finally the Sacramento City Council is taking up the issue of legalizing backyard chickens. The City’s Law and Leg Committee (Council Members Cohn, Hammond, Sheedy and Waters) will be discussing the issue, and with a little bit of education from the public, they will pass the issue on to the full City Council for a vote.

We Need Your Help!

Show up on Sept. 21st and voice your support for the issue. If you can’t make it, and even if you can, please call your City Councilmember in advance and let them know you support legalizing backyard chickens (Just dial 3-1-1 in the City).
